    Rana Ayyub on the tragedy in India: 'This reporting that we do is now at our doorstep'

    Rana Ayyub, a journalist based in Mumbai and a Washington Post global opinions writer, describes the perilous state of the pandemic in India and the limitations on journalists who are covering the crisis. "The carnage continues unabated," she says. But "how do you also report at a time when your own family members are losing their lives?" Ayyyb also discusses the media's relationship with Prime Minister Narendra Modi. She says "journalism is happening in India, but the gatekeepers are not allowing the truth to kind of get on the front pages." She asserts that "everything has been taken over by the Modi government. It's a one-man show."

    National Parks Traveler editor-in-chief Kurt Repanshek shares news from America's treasured places

    National Parks Traveler editor-in-chief Kurt Repanshek shares news from America's treasured places

    Kurt Repanshek is the founder and editor-in-chief of National Parks Traveler, the country's only news outlet dedicated to covering national parks and protected areas, and an early entrant to the now-growing group of nonprofit newsrooms. Repanshek joins Brian Stelter during National Parks Week to discuss his nimble operation, the significance of its nonprofit status, and the immense challenges he faces covering this broad and dynamic beat. He also touches on funding issues within the National Parks Service system, noting that "politics greatly intrude on efforts to cover the parks." Climate change is also an urgent part of the parks story, he says: From Cape Cod to the Grand Canyon, "just about everywhere you look in the national park system, there is a climate change story."

Weird

How does this clown have his own show? He’s the pettiest, most immature, blowhard on cable TV and now he’s got a podcast? Unreal

Rana Ayyub

The interview with Rana Ayyub was both stunning and appalling. The COVID crisis is horrific, but the press freedom in India may be worse. Populism and the pandemic have not been good for democracy and we are seeing that across the world. Thank you for bringing this story to light. Matt

Thank you , Brian!

We need a meta-report about how the different political views interpret and misinterpret facts and how they spin falsehood! Thank you for your excellent work!
