Media Roundtable: Understanding the Italian election results & the Dodd-Frank rollback

https__2f_2fspecials-images.forbesimg.com_2fdam_2fimageserve_2f41921578_2f960x0.jpg

On this week’s media roundtable, we’ll discuss coverage of a bipartisan push to roll back the 2010 Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform Act and the results of Italy's election.

This week, the Senate voted 67-31 to debate the banking deregulation bill, which would dismantle major parts of the law, including a provision that limits banks from speculating with taxpayer-backed deposits. We’ll also discuss the White House decision to slap tariffs on steel and aluminum imports and the victory of populist and far right parties in Italy’s election. 

Guests:

Gary Rivlin, reporting fellow with The Investigative Fund at The Nation Institute, and author of Katrina: After the Flood

David Dayen, contributor to The Intercept, and author of Chain of Title: How Three Ordinary Americans Uncovered Wall Street's Great Foreclosure Fraud

Eric Reguly, European bureau chief of The Globe and Mail
