Recession inbound, David Koch is dead, the death of local investigative reporting
On this week’s show, experts are seeing signs of recession as the economy struggles to keep growing and President Trump continues to undermine international confidence in the economic stability of the US. Lee Camp then memorializes the damning legacy of David Koch, covers the fires in the Amazon, and Johnson & Johnson’s relatively small fine for their part in creating the opioid epidemic. Natalie McGill reports on the future of local investigative reporting. Gannett, the largest newspaper publisher in the US, recently announced its merger with Gatehouse Media; the man who owns Gatehouse also owns an energy firm that invests in global natural gas production. Naomi Karavani returns with a story about the plastics industry, which continues to push the use of the petroleum product without any thought to making plastic packaging more environmentally sustainable.
