U.S. Rep. Jahana Hayes Criticizes News Media For 'Clickbait Journalism'

Aug 28, 2019

U.S. Representative Jahanna Hayes (D-5th District) issued a press release Sunday accusing the news media of “clickbait journalism” in response to two recent stories she claims made “reckless assumptions” about her comments.

President Trump has labeled the press the enemy of the people. At a time when trust in the media is low and anxiety over misinformation high, was there a better way to address this issue?

Also this hour: Connecticut’s public health commissioner decided Tuesday not to release updated school-by-school vaccine data that would show parents whether their child’s school has reached herd immunity -- or not.

And chaos at the Connecticut Port Authority leaves some wondering if the agency is able to guide a $93 million investment in New London’s state pier and a growing offshore wind generation project.

All that and more.
