News With Ed -- October 19, 2017

‘The last thing that’s held sacred in our society’

White House Chief of Staff John Kelly spoke at a press briefing on Thursday, admonishing Rep. Frederica Wilson for politicizing President Donald Trump’s “insensitive” phone call to the widow of Sgt. La David Johnson. He also implored the press as a whole to give due reverence to those who die in combat and gold-star families. Valerie Ervin, senior advisor with the Working Families Party, and Shawn Steel, former chairman of the California Republican Party, join “News with Ed” to offer their reactions

Faith in US media continues to plummet

A recent poll by Politico shows 46% of voters say that the media is lying or misleading when they report on Trump. Holland Cooke, host of “The Big Picture,” joins “News with Ed” to explain why he’s “utterly unsurprised” by the response. In this era, he says, we can “choose our news,” encouraging a media atmosphere where we “choose what to believe.”
