Leo Wolinsky, former managing editor at the Los Angeles Times, and Allison O'Donnell, a college-age social media intern at TheLatest.com, discuss the role of social media in politics -- including the recent Black Lives Matter protests.

Leo Wolinsky is a 30+ year news veteran.  He has some interesting things to say about Donald Trump and social media.

Allison O'Donnell attends University of Connecticut and is quite facile with social media platforms.  She has some interesting things to say about social media, as well.

Leo's editorial team at the Los Angeles Times covered the Rodney King riots in 1992 -- long before social media existed. 

Things have obviously changed and now we're witnessing Black Lives Matter protests all across the world.  How does social media play into this?

Listen to this most interesting intergenerational dialogue between Leo Wolinsky and Allison O'Donnell here:
