Hosts Rania Khalek and Kevin Gosztola discuss the Southern Poverty Law Center's apology to journalists for publishing a post that smeared them for allegedly being in alliance with white supremacists somehow under the influence of Russia. Khalek was one of multiple journalists attacked in this piece.
