Charles Thomas was ABC-7 Chief Political Editor, 2004-2016, and prior to that-- 20 yrs as a General News Correspondent at ABC-7 and-- prior to that, 12 years as a General News Correspondent at TV news stations around the country.
The show was taped on November 1, 2018 in the Chicago Loop.
Charles Thomas debates and discusses with show host Jeff Berkowitz how the media could have reported on the sexual assault and harassment allegations about now Supreme Court Justice Kavanaugh with the perspective of the Scottsboro Boys and Emmet Till incidents [That is, Presumed Innocent, as Scott Turow said, believed in and wrote about before several hundred years of jurisprudence were changed overnight by the "Me, too" movement].
Similarly, Thomas discusses how the recent Tree of Life Synagogue shooting could have been reported with the perspective of the Charleston Church shooting during the Obama Administration, but that would not have fit the narrative of the mostly left of center to left wing biased reporting of the mainstream media about Trump.
Also discussed in tonight's show is:
The 2019 Chicago Mayor's race-- including, but not limited to, the candidacies of Toni Preckwinkle, Susana Mendoza, Paul Vallas, Gary McCarthy, Bill Daley, Willie Wilson, Jamal Green, Amara Enyia, Dorothy Brown, Gery Chico and Lori Lightfoot.
The potential impact on the Mayor's race of Mayor Rahm Emanuel, Speaker Madigan, Ald. Burke, former Mayor Richard M. Daley and others.
Whether the issue of Barack Obama being authentically Black arose during the 2004 IL U. S. Senate Dem Primary and will similar issues arise in the 2019 Mayor's race as to minority candidates being authentically Hispanic or African-American.
