Media Roundtable: The Pro-Trump Mob Attack On The Capitol & How Democrats Won The Georgia Runoffs

Jan 8, 2021


On this edition of Your Call’s media roundtable, we are discussing the attacks on the Capitol by violent pro-Trump mobs and white nationalists.

The rioters walked into the capitol, smashed windows, vandalized and looted offices, and waved confederate and pro-Trump flags. Media critics say many in the national press have failed to adequately cover Trump and what he has unleashed over the past four years.
