Baltimore Sun Comes Clean and Use Alt Text and Win

Julie and Torin note the potentially historical Russian invasion of Ukraine beginning this week and implore listeners to think about the impact of underrepresented and historically targeted communities who have been safe in Ukraine and very NOT safe in Russia. Then the New York Times helps us understand the importance of alt text in images online - Julie takes it a step farther - when we use alt text we all win. Finally, in our main story, the Baltimore Sun publishes what Julie and Torin feel is a sincere apology and acknowledgement of racist acts in its history. How does it compare to other major pubs like the LA Times and others? How does it make you feel?
