10/15/2019
More
Democratic presidential hopeful Elizabeth Warren has rekindled her feud with Big Tech — this time calling out Facebook for political disformation.

The Warren campaign took out a Facebook ad to highlight the policy. The ad opens with: “Breaking news: Mark Zuckerberg and Facebook just endorsed Donald Trump for re-election.” Today on Tech Tuesday on All Sides...

Weekly Reporter Roundtable

10/14/2019
More
When Gov. Mike DeWine addressed a Dayton crowd two days after a mass shooting in August, the crowd asked him to just "do something." He responded with a proposal for universal background checks on gun sales and a version of the "red flag" law. The governor last week retreated from both promises, saying that he has a superior plan that would expand the state’s pink slip system, hospitalizing certain people deemed at risk for violence for up to three days, and a way to make it easier to...

Gun Control In Ohio

10/9/2019
More
Governor Mike DeWine in August -- and just days after a mass shooting in Dayton -- proposed the outline of a plan for mandatory background checks on private gun sales and a version of the so-called “red flag” law. On Monday, DeWine retreated from both proposals. Instead, he proposed expanding the state’s “pink slip” system that hospitalizes people who are mentally ill for up to three days. And he proposed a plan to make it easier to prosecute the gun sellers. Today on All Sides with Ann...

More
Sewage overflow is an issue in the U.S. The EPA estimates that each year as many as 75,000 sanitary sewers overflow across the country, dumping untold gallons of untreated sewage into U.S. Waterways. The City of Columbus in 2005 adopted a plan to address the overflow by expanding the size of the sewers. A decade later, the city changed course, deciding instead to reduce the amount of storm water before it reaches the sewers. Rain gardens play a big role. Today on All Sides with Ann Fisher:...

Workplace Discrimination In The U.S.
