Media roundtable: North Korea at the winter Olympics & Trump's proposed food stamp cuts

Feb 15, 2018

On this week’s weekly media roundtable, we’ll discuss media coverage of North Korea's participation in the Winter Olympics in South Korea. In the opening ceremony, athletes from both countries wore the same uniform and carried a unified flag.

We’ll also talk about the sections of the White House budget that calls for cuts in food stamps and the replacement of monthly benefits with a cardboard box of nonperishable goods. In the US, 42 million people use food stamps.
