Civic Cocktail: Bob Ferguson & State of Journalism

Washington State Attorney General Bob Ferguson and leaders in local journalism were the featured guests at the February Civic Cocktail. Ferguson - who this week filed the nation's first lawsuit against Trump's executive order on immigration - talked with host Joni Balter about the state's opposition to the travel ban, his stance on Washington's death penalty, assault weapons and legal marijuana. Then, in an age of "fake news" and "alternative facts," a media panel discussed presenting contrasting points of view, the changing media landscape and the future of the press.
