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