Blindspot Report

July 28 - August 3


Brought to you by: Fly By Jing Logo

Good evening. It’s Tuesday, August 3rd, and we’re shining a light on blindspots from across the political spectrum.

We’re looking at coverage of a gun maker's settlement offer to Sandy Hook families, the effects of warming rivers in the US West, and how different outlets are covering the House GOP response to new senate mask mandates.

Have any feedback about the Blindspot Report? Let me know by replying to this email - or contacting me at feedback@ground.news.

Stay Grounded!
