Media Roundtable: The Brexit deadlock & Trump's judicial appointments


On this week's media roundtable, we’ll discuss the political crisis in the United Kingdom as the county approaches another Brexit deadline. On April 12th, the UK has to come up with a new plan — or leave the EU without a deal.

We’ll also look at coverage of the long-term consequences of Donald Trump’s overwhelmingly white, male conservative judges taking over many levels of the US federal court system.
