After the shooting at the Capitol Gazette in Annapolis two weeks ago, journalists are questioning what free press means to American society. 

Should the media just report the facts or give some interpretation to whats going on? How many Americans believe that the news organizations favored one side of the political party? We discussed these questions and how faith in the nation’s media are at an all-time low.

Our panelists were:
