Connections: The Future Of American Journalism Under The Trump Administration

Donald Trump has said he wants libel laws to be loosened, making it easier for politicians to be able to sue journalists when they write what he calls "hit pieces." What would it mean for journalists if Trump gets his way? How could it impact a free press? 

Investigative journalist David Cay Johnston is the author of the book, The Making of Donald Trump. He joins us to discuss the future of American journalism, and he answers your questions about what we can expect in terms of healthcare, trade, and more under the Trump administration.

Evan Dawson is the host of "Connections with Evan Dawson." He joined WXXI in January 2014 after working at 13WHAM-TV, where he served as morning news anchor. He was hired as a reporter for 13WHAM-TV in 2003 before being promoted to anchor in 2007.
