Media Roundtable: The GOP’s Post-Election Voter Supression Tactics & FRONTLINE's “American Voices"

On this edition of Your Call’s Media Roundtable, we're discussing Donald Trump and the GOP’s dangerous attack on election integrity. Mother Jones reporter Ari Berman reports that the ultimate plan is to make it even harder to vote, especially in communities of color. 

Later in the show, we'll talk about American Voices: A Nation in Turmoil, a new FRONTLINE documentary that follows Americans as they dealt with the COVID pandemic, responded to George Floyd's killing, and then experienced an intense election.
