Seattle drops Wells Fargo over Dakota Access Pipeline

Seattle’s city council voted unanimously to end contracts with Wells Fargo due to their investment in the Dakota Access Pipeline. Lindsay France talks to city councilmember Kshama Sawant about the decision and how the city will look at corporate conduct in new contracts. Then, under President Donald Trump’s administration, the FCC is dropping a fight to lower phone calls from prisons and jails. The move is upsetting advocates for those prisoners, Marina Portnaya breaks it down. Later Manuel Rapalo tells us about the ways Twitter and Facebook will fight trolls online after more pressure from users and even governments.
