For focus on Washington, D.C., PBS’ ongoing Friday program, “Washington Week,” continues with “Washington Post” national political reporter, Robert Costa moderating a round table discussion from award-winning journalists.
For those unfamiliar with the show, Costa said, it is “almost like a kitchen table” where the non-partisan reporters turn down the volume and explain what’s happening with this administration and its policies.
As one would expect, they will be tracking the special counsel investigation of Russian interference, asking “important questions for this democracy.” Costa said, “I don’t like to predict anything; I assume nothing. You never know who’s going to rise and fall in politics.”
With the negative attention the president has given the press, Costa feels journalists need “to show people that we are people” and that “there’s a commitment to the truth.”
