The State Of Journalism With Sam Knight (District Sentinel)

This is a special episode with the correspondents. Naomi Karavani looks at some of the headlines from the last week. Mike Bloomberg has used prison labor to make fundraising calls for his campaign, Virginia school district is giving its students one day off a year for civic engagement, and Amazon's "Ring" is caught up in a creepy lawsuit after their cameras and speaker systems were hacked. Anders Lee sat down with Sam Knight. Knight reports for the District Sentinel, a DC-based news site. They discuss the corporate rot that's undermining journalism in the US, Trump's impeachment, and the DNC primary.

Natalie McGill finishes off the show with a review of some of the dumbest tweets from the last week. Mike Bloomberg makes his third appearance in the episode with his thoughts on making the West Wing an open office plan, a GOP politician compares Trump's impeachment to the crucifixion of Jesus, and major media sources refer to the 1921 massacre of black people in Tulsa, OK as 'race riots.'
