'60 Minutes' Piece On DeSantis; Allegations Against Gaetz; Piney Point Updates

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis gestures as he speaks to the media at a coronavirus vaccination site at Lakewood Ranch Wednesday, Feb. 17, 2021, in Bradenton.

On Friday’s program we took a closer look at the 60 Minutes piece on Gov. Ron DeSantis’ vaccine rollout and his reaction to it with Marc Caputo of Politico and Joshua Scacco, an associate professor in the Department of Communication at the University of South Florida.

We also discussed the allegations surrounding Congressman Matt Gaetz with Caputo and Miami Herald Capital Bureau Chief Mary Ellen Klas.

And, we got an update on the environmental emergency at Piney Point from Jessica Meszaros of WUSF in Tampa, along with Caputo and Klas.
