February 24, 2017

In this week's edition of "Beat the Press," host Emily Rooney (@emilyrooneywgbh) and her panel weigh in on how the media is reacting to President's Donald Trump's criticism of them and how some outlets are fighting back. Then, the panel delves into the limitations of free speech  after Breitbart technology editor Milo Yiannopoulous lost his job and a book deal over a controversial statement. Finally, the panel will discuss reports of looming cuts to the Corporation for Public Broadcasting. Emily's guests will also share their Rants and Raves about what happened in the media world this past week. She's joined by Northeastern University journalism professor Dan Kennedy (@dankennedy_nu), Callie Crossley (@CallieCrossley) of WGBH News, Josh Benton (@jbenton) of the Nieman Journalism Lab, and Adam Reilly (@reillyadam) of WGBH News.
