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. 

 

Guests:

 

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

 
Joshua Holland, contributor to The Nation, and co-host of We've Got Issues podcast

Stephen Fowler, award-winning reporter and photographer for Georgia Public Broadcasting
