Valley Edition - October 2, 2018 - Nunes Mailer Targets Fresno Bee, Wildfire Season Getting Worse

Oct 2, 2018

This week on Valley Edition: A look at California’s changing wildfire season through the lens of health: Why firefighter deaths aren’t falling in California the way they are in the rest of the country. We also add context to a mailer from Devin Nunes's campaign against an unusual opponent: The Fresno Bee. Plus, Tme Magazine says it’s a book everyone will be talking about this Fall -- Nazi sympathizers in the U.S. during World War II. We hear from the author, a Fresno historian. And Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter Sonia Nazario talks to us about immigration and media literacy. Also, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar is coming to Fresno. He’s first in the lineup for the San Joaquin Valley Town Hall speaker series starting this month. We talk with one of the organizers about who else is on the roster.
