Media Roundtable: Spain's snap election & the Bay Area's housing crisis

May 2, 2019


On this week's media roundtable, we’ll discuss coverage of the snap elections in Spain. The fractured political landscape handed the Socialist Party most of the parliamentary seats, and, for the first time, the far right anti-immigrant Vox Party, which was backed by Steve Bannon, won 10 percent of the vote. What’s next for Spain?

 

We will also discuss an investigation by the Bay Area News Group about Northern California's unprecedented housing crisis.

 

Guests:

 

Carlos Delclós, editor of ROAR Magazine

 

Katy Murphy, State Capitol and housing reporter for the Bay Area News Group
