Emily Rooney, host of WGBH News' Beat the Press, joined Boston Public Radio Friday to discuss the recent coverage of Judge Richard Sinnott’s decision to oppose prosecutors' desire not to press charges against counter-protesters at the recent so-called “straight pride” parade in Boston.

Rooney also weighed in on whether large institutions that have accepted donations from controversial individuals like Jeffrey Epstein or the Sackler family should return that money.
