Has the new administration declared war on the media? A virile, unafraid press is the best
guarantor of a free society. How will the American media continue to function as free and unafraid agents in a new political ballgame, the unorthodox presidency of Donald Trump?
Join us as Marvin and Bernard Kalb analyze and assess this unprecedented new relationship which challenges the most revered role of the free press– accurately informing the citizens of the plans and actions, deeds and misdeeds, of their elected government.
