SRO Hotels on Sixth Street

On this week’s media roundtable, we’ll speak with McClatchy’s Ben Weider about why the United Arab Emirates is paying the parent company of the Steve Bannon-linked firm Cambridge Analytica $330,000 for a social media campaign against Qatar.

San Francisco journalist Joe Eskenazi joins us to discuss his cover story in the latest issues of SF Public Press, which examines how thousands of people remain homeless while rooms in SRO hotels remain vacant, and the Huffington Post’s Arthur Delaney will give us the latest on the GOP budget blueprint and their massive tax cuts plan

Guests:

Ben Wieder, data reporter for McClatchy's Washington Bureau

Arthur Delaney, reporter at Huffington Post covering politics and the economy

Joe Eskenazi, San Francisco based journalist
