On WGBH: School shootings, royal weddings, #MeToo, and Boston business issues

Recently on WGBH-TV's "Beat the Press," Adam Reilly, Dan Kennedy, Callie Crossley and I joined host Emily Rooney to talk about about how the media is covering the latest school shooting, the latest royal wedding, the latest racism-related business issue in Boston, and the latest #MeToo-related punishment on Spotify. Plus, of course, our weekly rants and raves -- my rave was for Wired Magazine's coverage of the news through the lens of science, and for the fantastic reviews by acclaimed food and travel writer Joe Ray.You can watch clips below:
