    CNN’s John King Breaks Down 2020 Election Coverage

    CNN’s John King Breaks Down 2020 Election Coverage

    This podcast re-posted with permission from the National Press Club. To see the original podcast page for this episode, please go to the NPC website: https://www.press.org/newsroom/cnns-john-king-breaks-down-2020-election-coverage

    With a field of primary candidates as large as the Democrats’ in 2020, keeping up-to-date with election news is challenging. The process is even more daunting for political journalists who gather ever-changing data from candidates, pollsters, strategists, and voters across the country. Effectively analyzing and organizing this information into an easily digestible package for the public is a skill that takes years to develop. CNN’s John King, host of Inside Politics, has spent his career covering elections from nearly every angle. King talks to NPC Broadcast/Podcast team member Shannon Fisher about capturing the of-the-moment essence of elections, finding the pulse of America, and the manner in which media coverage of general elections differs from that of crowded primaries.

    The Right to Language Assistance in Healthcare: Kelly Grzech on Our Lives with Shannon Fisher

    The Right to Language Assistance in Healthcare: Kelly Grzech on Our Lives with Shannon Fisher

    Certified Medical Interpreter Kelly Grzech talks to Shannon about the right of all non-English speaking patients to a medical interpreter. A misunderstanding between doctor and patient can have dire, even fatal, consequences, which can be avoided by using a medical interpreter. It doesn't matter if a patient is a citizen, undocumented immigrant, or traveler from abroad; all non-English speaking patients have a right to medical interpretation. Sadly, many undocumented people avoid seeking healthcare for fear of deportation because this right is not widely known. The right to language assistance is guaranteed by the Affordable Care Act, Section 1557, and the Civil Rights Act of 1964, Title VI.

    Start by Believing: Larry Nassar's Crimes, the Institutions that Enabled Him, and the Brave Women Who Stopped a Monster. ESPN's John Barr and Dan Murphy on Our Lives with Shannon Fisher

    Start by Believing: Larry Nassar's Crimes, the Institutions that Enabled Him, and the Brave Women Who Stopped a Monster. ESPN's John Barr and Dan Murphy on Our Lives with Shannon Fisher

    Start by Believing reveals the win-at-all-costs culture in elite athletics and higher education that enabled a quarter century of heinous crimes. For decades, osteopathic physician Larry Nassar was the go-to doctor for America's Olympians. Within this high-pressure world of competitive gymnastics, Nassar sexually assaulted and exploited hundreds of young girls under the guise of medical treatment. 

    In Start by Believing, John Barr and Dan Murphy investigate the largest sex abuse scandal to impact the sporting world. Through never-before-released interviews and documents they deconstruct the epic institutional failures and individuals who enabled him. When warnings were raised, self-serving leaders chose to protect their organization over the well-being of young people. Barr and Murphy tell the stories of those who fought back against the dysfunction within their sport to claim a far-from-inevitable victory and helped fuel the #MeToo revolution.
