Media Roundtable: The Attack On A Maternity Ward In Kabul & Data Journalism During COVID-19
On this edition of Your Call’s Media Roundtable, we're discussing the COVID-19 outbreak in Afghanistan and the devastating attack on a Kabul maternity ward run by Doctors Without Borders. Terrorists killed at least 24 people, including newborns, mothers, and nurses.
Later in the show, new information and studies are constantly coming out about COVID-19. We’ll discuss the best way to identify reliable information about the virus, how journalists are reading the data, and how misinformation spreads on social media.
