At the next #BHeard Town Hall at BRIC this Friday, April 28, a group of veteran journalists will discuss the consequences of hostilities between President Trump and the mainstream press—and what can be done about it.

Hosted by Brian Vines, senior correspondent at BRIC TV, the Town Hall will feature Kyle Pope, editor in chief of Columbia Journalism Review; Naomi Wolf, author, political activist and co-founder of the Daily Clout; Ali Gharib, chief politics editor at Mic; Sheryl Huggins Salomon, senior editor-at-large at The Root; and Walter Mosley, novelist and social commentator (pictured below).

The panel will use as a launching point the idea that public trust in the media has hit a new low — according to a recent Gallup Poll, 64 percent of Americans say “fake news” has left them confused about basic facts. (more…)

Documentaries that give you a fresh set of eyes to view the world are rare, but The Sweatshop of Wall Street is one of them. Produced by BRIC TV, Sweatshop investigates the world of direct sales in New York City, and you may never look at your cellphone the same way again.

The documentary follows Phil Vasto and Zao Yang, New York City twentysomethings who began working selling cellphone contracts for a company called Credico. That was their first mistake. Seventy hour workweeks that yielded as little as $40 paychecks was one indignity, but that paled in comparison to the harassment they encountered in Credico’s cult-like corporate culture.
