Media Roundtable: A New Chapter Of The War In Syria & PG&E’s Long Record of Run-Ins With Regulators

Oct 17, 2019


  On the next Your Call’s media roundtable, we’ll discuss the humanitarian crisis in the Kurdish-controlled areas in northern Syria. According to reports, more than 275,000 people have fled their homes since the Turkish offensive began on October 9.

We'll also discuss a Wall Street Journal investigation that reveals how, for more than two decades, PG&E misled regulatory authorities, withheld required information, didn’t follow through on promised improvements, engaged in improper back-channel communications with regulators or obstructed an investigation.

Guests:

Lindsey Hilsum, Channel 4 News International Editor and author of In Extremis: The Life of War Correspondent Marie Colvin

 

Rebecca Smith, award winning national energy reporter for the Wall Street Journal
