Frank Prosnitz, a former Reporter for the Providence Journal and Providence Business News, joined me on The Open Forum on Wednesday to discuss local politics, statewide politics and much more.

Among the topics that were discussed were how many members of the Rhode Island General Assembly “called out” journalists, the Providence Journal and WPRI on their journalistic practices.

We also discussed the (then) proposed resolution to ban plastic bags in Newport, and the Senate Hearing today that will discuss raising the meals and beverage tax in Newport and Middletown.
