Balanced Debate For The Old North State.
North Carolina is under siege from many fronts and this week’s NC SPIN discusses them. We begin by asking if we have truly lost the Republican convention. We talk about protests, riots and looting in our communities and examine week Two of Phase Two reopening from COVID-19 and talk about how we are responding. Joining our panel this week are former House Speaker Joe Mavretic, Journalist and filmmaker Cash Michaels, Chris Fitzsimon, Director of States Newsroom and John Hood, Syndicated columnist and author. Be sure to watch NC SPIN at 7:30 p.m. Friday and again at 12:30 p.m. Sunday on UNC-TV. You can also watch Friday night at 10 p.m., Saturday at 4:30 p.m., and Sunday at 10 a.m. on UNC-TV's NC Channel. Or you can stream NC SPIN at your leisure on our Youtube channel you can find on ncspin.com. Thank you for watching NC SPIN.
