Printing press

The US Department of Commerce recently announced tariffs on imported newsprint coming into the United States. Printers, publishers and paper suppliers employ more than 600,000 people in the United States. Those jobs support millions of additional, primarily good paying jobs in small businesses across the country. Jerry Edwards of the Edwards Group, a family of communications, printing, radio and web companies, joins the show to talk about exactly why these tariffs are being implemented and what it means for the economy and news media. To help fight these tariffs and ensure your right to information, contact your members of congress and ask them to help: US Senator Johnny Isakson – (202) 224-3643 US Senator David Perdue – (202) 228-1031 US Congressman Rob Woodall (GA07) – (202) 225-4272 US Congresswoman Karen Handel (GA06) - (202) 225-4501 Live outside of North Atlanta?
