Media Roundtable: The Fallout From The Mob Attack At The US Capitol & The COVID Crisis In The UK
On this edition of Your Call’s media roundtable, we're discussing the fallout from last week’s violent attack on the US Capitol. The pro-Trump rioters also went after the news media. They etched “Murder the media” onto a door in the Capitol, punched an AP photographer, threatened journalists, and damaged or stole their equipment.
Later in the show, we'll discuss the COVID pandemic in England. The virus has infected more than 3 million people and more than 84,000 have died.
