This edition: War on Words

Episode Details

Original tape date: May 11, 2015.

First aired: May 13, 2015.

On this edition of Independent Sources hosted by Abi Ishola, we discuss why some critics say that the mainstream media’s use of certain words during the coverage of the recent upheaval over police brutality in Baltimore might be skewing the greater political message that’s trying to be sent. Then we learn about why some immigrants find mainstream financial institutions untrustworthy and why that’s leading them to be fleeced by fraudsters.
