This week, former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort and his business associate Rick Gates were indicted on a long list of crimes, including money laundering. Earlier this month, Donald Trump’s foreign policy adviser George Papadopoulos pleaded guilty to making false statements to the FBI. On this week’s media roundtable, we’ll discuss coverage of the investigation into Russian meddling in the election.
We'll also talk about the future of independent media. This week, New America Media, and its parent organization, the Pacific News Service, announced plans to end their news operations after more than four decades.
