NewsWorks Tonight July 10, 2015 – Full Episode

    Listen

    Tom MacDonald talks to leaders at the annual NAACP national meeting in Philadelphia at a moment of heightened racial tension around the country.  Avi Wolfram-Arent reports on a cyber-stalking verdict that some are saying is the first of its kind.  Bobby Allen explores what’s next for historic St. Laurentius church in Fishtown after it was saved from demolition. Host Dave Heller sits down with Scott Gurian, NJ Spotlight reporter, to discuss the disparity between FEMA aid for New York and New Jersey. We are also joined by Frank Newport, editor-in-chief of the Gallup Poll, to discuss polling data around national views of the Confederate flag. And while the Pope is in town this fall, an eight-foot security fence will be placed around some parts of Center City. NewsWorks Blogger Solomon Jones hopes that fence doesn’t obscure some of the city’s more impoverished neighborhoods from view.
