Media Roundtable: Coverage of reproductive rights & attacks on press freedoms
On this edition of Your Call’s media roundtable, we’ll discuss national coverage of abortion rights after Alabama passed a near-total ban on abortion. How are the media covering the Republicans’ ongoing assault on abortion rights?
We’ll also discuss a police raid on the home of journalist Bryan Carmody who was investigating the death of San Francisco public defender Jeff Adachi. Journalists have condemned the raid as a serious infringement on press freedom.
