#1358: 1st Amendment Groups Plan To Sue President Trump Over Twitter Blocking

(Airs 6/11 & 6/12/17) The Media Project is an inside look at media coverage of current events with WAMC’s Alan Chartock, Albany Times Union Editor Rex Smith, and Cailin Brown, Chair of the Department of Communication at the College of St. Rose. On this week’s Media Project, Alan, Rex and Cailin talk about a First Amendment group that is threatening to sue President Trump unless he unblocks Twitter critics, a proposed bill in New Jersey that could create an AmeriCorps for journalists, a Pew Research Center report that shows a dismal 2016 for newspapers and boom times for cable news networks.

David Guistina is the host of Capital Connection, Legislative Gazette, and Morning Edition and the producer of the Media Project on WAMC.
