Reporter-turned-media-reformer Sue Wilson joins the program to remind listeners that in spite of extensive and destructive media deregulation,
radio and TV stations still have a legal obligation to serve the public interest; she calls on citizens to demand the FCC firmly enforce
this mandate. In the final 15 minutes of the show, Nolan Higdon provides a skeptical review of CNN's new documentary about fake news.
