Beat the Press: CNN Crew Arrested, a New Presidential Order, Embracing or Ignoring Bias?

"Beat the Press" is back, and I'm on tonight with host Emily Rooney, former CNN correspondent Dan Lothian, former NECN host Mike Nikitas, and WGBH's Adam Reilly. We're talking about the arrest of a CNN crew and reporter this morning in Minneapolis, the ins and outs of the president's executive order aimed at social media, whether the mainstream media should just embrace its bias, and our weekly rants and raves. (My rave this week was for Washington Post Executive Editor  Marty Baron and the commencement speech he gave yesterday to Harvard University's graduating class. It's a must-see or must-read for anyone who cares about freedom of speech and freedom of the press.)Tune in to WGBH-TV tonight at 7 p.m., or watch the show below:
