In the first half of the show, Sharyl Attkisson shares ideas from her new book “Slanted. “ She contends that in recent years
corporate and government forces have dramatically expanded their intervention into the conduct of journalism, to the extent
that some types of investigative stories can no longer be reported.
 
Then British reporter Rachael Jolley joins the show to explain how the coronavirus pandemic has changed the work of reporters –
in Europe and elsewhere. She notes that even while the pandemic has squeezed media outlets' revenue, communities are searching
for reliable local news more than they previously did.
