Media Roundtable: The Opaque World Of Nursing Home Licensing In CA & Frontline Investigates The Rise Of Extreme White Nationalists In The US

Frontline: "American Insurrection"
Frontline: "American Insurrection"

On this edition of Your Call’s media roundtable, we are discussing a CalMatters investigation that exposes an opaque licensing process for California nursing homes. Officials have let the state’s largest nursing home owner operate 18 homes for years while failing to decide whether to grant the required licenses.

Later in the show, we are discussing American Insurrection, a new FRONTLINE documentary that examines how far-right extremist groups have evolved in the wake of the deadly 2017 Charlottesville rally.
