Today on Boston Public Radio:
We opened the show to talk with listeners about the latest results of the 2020 presidential election, as former Vice President Joe Biden appeared close to a victory.
Emily Rooney talked about the move by several TV news outlets to cut away from President Trump's Thursday press conference, after he repeated false claims about voter fraud in the 2020 election. She also discussed news that former Red Sox manager Alex Cora is returning to manage the Red Sox after January’s cheating scandal, and read her weekly list of fixations and fulminations. Rooney is the host of GBH’s Beat the Press.
Boston Mayor Marty Walsh called in for our monthly edition of “Ask the Mayor.” He talked about the state of the 2020 presidential race, COVID testing in Boston, whether he plans to run for re-election and what he thinks about the return of Alex Cora to the Red Sox. As always, Walsh also responded to questions and comments from callers.
Callie Crossley talked about Joe Biden's razor-thin lead in the Georgia presidential race, and the role of former Georgia House Minority Leader Stacey Abrams in the state's election. She also weighed in on the possibility of election-related violence, and recent writing by Monica Hess in the Washington Post about the unique advantages of having women in positions of power. Crossley is the host of GBH’s Under the Radar and Basic Black.
We closed out Friday's show by returning to callers to talk about your thoughts on the steadily unfolding 2020 presidential race.
