METROFOCUS: MARCH 28, 2019

March 29, 2019 at 5:30 am

As more people contract measles in Rockland County, new rules are imposed upon those children who are not vaccinated. All eyes now turn to some in the area’s Orthodox Jewish community who have shunned the vaccine, and what is being done to contain the outbreak. New York City’s new public advocate Jumaane Williams shares thoughts on Mayor Bill de Blasio, the MTA’s fare hike, the successes and failures of Thrive NYC, and the future of our city. In a new documentary America’s favorite sex therapist shares her life story as a Holocaust survivor, a sniper for the Israel Defense Forces, a wife, and a mother before playing a major role in America’s sexual revolution.

Aired on March 28, 2019.
