News Roundtable   Mar 19, 2021

Police brutality, anti-vaccine sentiment and the Grammys’ record-low ratings

With Euan Rellie, Angelina Chapin & Edward Davies

A round-up and review of the week’s biggest news stories

This week is our ‘News Roundtable’ format, where host Chris Wright discusses the week’s biggest stories with journalists and decision-makers. In this episode Chris is joined by Euan Rellie, co-founder and managing director of BDA Partners; Angelina Chapin, senior writer at New York Magazine’s, The Cut; and Edward Davies, policy director at The Centre for Social Justice. 

The discussion begins with reactions to the disappearance of Sarah Everard, and how the events of her vigil have raised serious questions around police brutality, and more broadly, violence towards women. 

The conversation moves to concerns around the AstraZeneca jab and the political divide on anti-vaccine sentiment. Guests also exchange views on whether the pandemic was the catalyst for a drastic drop in the Grammys’ TV ratings, or if young people have simply lost interest in consuming network television.
