Media Roundtable: The Ilhan Omar controversy & the big business of drug rehab centers
On this edition of Your Call’s media roundtable, we’ll discuss coverage of the campaign against Representative Ilhan Omar for criticizing the political influence of the pro-Israel lobby AIPAC and House Democrats’ debate over anti-Semitism and Islamophobia.
We’ll also hear about about a nine-month Mother Jones investigation about how recovering addicts are wooed by patient brokers and rehabs to fill beds and collect insurance money.
