In The Thick

Jan 29, 2019

The longest shutdown in U.S. history has ended with the President taking credit for solving a problem that he created and continuing his rhetoric about a non-existent border crisis. Maria and Julio are joined by two All-Stars: Jenni Monet, an independent journalist and tribal member of the Pueblo of Laguna, and Terrell Jermaine Starr, senior reporter at The Root. They talk about what has been missing in the coverage of the shutdown, what mainstream media overlooked in the aftermath of the Lincoln Memorial incident and Tom Brokaw's problematic assimilation comment.

ITT Staff Picks:

  • A Florida town grapples with a shutdown after a hurricane, from the New York Times.
  • Latino leaders demand more from NBC, Brokaw and Meet the Press for xenophobic comment, from Latino Rebels.
