Midday On The Media With Dave Folkenflik 11.12.19

Liz Linder/NPR

Today, it’s Midday on the Media with the host of On Point and NPR Media Correspondent David Folkenflik.

Americans are embarking on the first impeachment inquiry in which social media provides a platform for concerned citizens and malevolent operators alike.  How do Facebook, Twitter and Instagram see their obligation in the political process? 

ABC and NBC are on the defensive as the MeToo movement continues to expose assaults by high profile people.  Have these large news organizations and others suppressed critical stories of powerful players?

And, the streaming wars heat up with  the launch of Disney's new on demand service, Disney Plus.  

Dave Folkenflik and Tom will continue their conversation tomorrow night at Baltimore Center Stage.  The event begins at 7:30pm.  For more information and to reserve your seats visit:  https://www.eventbrite.com/e/wypr-presents-an-evening-with-nprs-david-folkenflik-tickets-73427951981

Host, Midday (M-F 12:00-1:00)
