CJR · Rebecca Traister: Abortion, a case study in media disinterest

 

On this week’s Kicker, Rebecca Traister, a writer-at-large for New York magazine and The Cut and the author of Good and Mad, a book about the history and political power of women’s anger, sits down with Kyle Pope, editor and publisher of CJR. They discuss why the press seemed only willing to cover “medically chilling” abortion stories, and how to protect sources as abortion’s legal loopholes disappear.
