NPR's David Folkenflik On Media News, Including Trump's Son-In-Law

An open letter from New York Observer entertainment writer Dana Schwartz to Jared Kushner — owner of the company that publishes The Observer — and Donald Trump’s Jewish son-in-law sparked controversy this week. The letter referred to an illustration that Trump tweeted on Monday that many people viewed as anti-Semitic.

Also, Gretchen Carlson, a former Fox News Channel host, filed a lawsuit accusing Roger Ailes — the network’s powerful chairman and CEO — of sexual harassment.

NPR’s David Folkenflik joins Here & Now‘s Robin Young to discuss the week’s media news.
