ITT Sound Off: Hoodwinked and Bamboozled

Maria and Julio discuss the news of the Biden administration finally putting an end to Title 42, a Trump-era public health order. They also unpack the media’s coverage of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, and the latest on the January 6 attempted coup.

ITT Staff Picks:

  • In this piece for Al Jazeera, Jihan Abdalla reports on how immigrant rights groups are reacting to the Biden administration’s indications that it will revoke Title 42 in the coming months.

  • “National security coverage largely relies on official and military sources that, like a man with a hammer who always sees a nail, are likely to favor intervention,” writes Mark Hannah, senior fellow at the Eurasia Group Foundation, for Foreign Policy.

  • Legal analyst Lisa Rubin explains how the January 6 committee ought to respond to a major gap in Donald Trump’s call logs in this piece for MSNBC.
