Media Roundtable: The Pro-Trump Mob Attack On The Capitol & How Democrats Won The Georgia Runoffs

On this edition of Your Call’s media roundtable, we are discussing the attacks on the Capitol by violent pro-Trump mobs and white nationalists. The rioters walked into the capitol, smashed windows, vandalized and looted offices, and waved confederate and pro-Trump flags. Media critics say many in the national press have failed to adequately cover Trump and what he has unleashed over the past four years.

<--break-> Later in the show, we'll discuss coverage of the historic Democratic victories in Georgia. 




David Cay Johnston, Pulitzer Prize winning investigative reporter, the author of It's Even Worse Than You Think: What the Trump Administration Is Doing to America and editor of DCReport.org
