A Bipartisan Killer

Maria and Julio are joined by ITT All-Stars Wajahat Ali, columnist for The Daily Beast, and Jamilah King, deputy inequality editor for Buzzfeed News. They dive into the latest on the COVID-19 crisis, including the new omicron variant, and what’s needed to fight global vaccine inequality. They also unpack the trial and conviction of Ahmaud Arbery’s killers, and the state of U.S. democracy as we approach the 2022 midterm elections. ITT Staff Picks: - Early findings of the new coronavirus variant, omicron, show that it might be more transmissible and better able to get around the body’s immune responses, reports Apoorva Mandavilli for The New York Times. - For BuzzFeed News, reporter Jamilah King contributed to a story about a Black man who shot and killed a white teen, which asks whether his self-defense claim will carry the same weight as those made by other defendants. - “We have less than a year to try and save our ailing Republic from an increasingly radicalized and weaponized GOP death cult,” writes Wajahat Ali for The Daily Beast.
