Stream Full Episodes: | #RetroReportPBS
Blasting the media has been a hallmark of President Trump. He has also championed the prosecution of those who leak White House secrets, threatening to do the same to journalists. He is following a playbook that dates to Richard Nixon, and was revised more recently by Barack Obama.

Retro Report makes sense of the present by revealing the past. Join journalists Celeste Headlee and Masud Olufani as they connect the present to the past through four distinct and varied stories, and New Yorker humorist Andy Borowitz adds his signature wit. Tune in or stream new episodes Mondays and Tuesdays at 9/8c starting Oct. 7.
