WATCH: Strange Exchange; Blurred Lines; Reporter I.D.

March 31, 2017

On this week’s edition of meet the press, Adam Reilly (@reillyadam)—in for Emily Rooney—and the panel discuss whether the public can distinguish between news and opinion. That was the question highlighted by Ted Koppel in his now-viral interview with Sean Hannity. The CBS This Morning piece quickly drew rebuke from conservatives and the Fox commentator himself, who dedicated an entire monologue to criticizing Koppel.  Then the panel weighs in on a tense exchange between Sean Spicer and American Urban Radio Network White House Correspondent April Ryan. The back-and-forth drew a lot of buzz this week after Spicer told Ryan to stop shaking her head during his answer to a question she asked related to Russia. Finally, the panel discusses how far a reporter should go to identify oneself while working in the field.
