Nightside with Dan Rea - Rundown for September 16, 2020


Outdoor Dining Amid Cold Weather. Boston Mayor Marty Walsh has announced that the restaurant outdoor dining season has been extended from October 31 to December 1 in an effort to support the city's struggling restaurant industry during the Coronavirus pandemic. Will this help? Will you dine outside in New England as the weather changes cooler? Dan speaks with Roger Berkowitz of Legal Sea Foods to see how his restaurants are dealing with the dining restrictions.

Support for the Thin Blue Line. An Ohio high school has reversed the suspension of two football players who defied school officials and carried Back the Blue and Thin Red Line flags at the opening of a game as a show of support for First Responders on the anniversary of 9/11. In a statement the school says moving forward, the only two flags that will come through the Little Miami football tunnel are the flag of the United States of America and the schools spirit flag. Did the school do the right thing in the end?

Ambush at ABC? Last night President Trump took part in an ABC town hall hosted by George Stephanopoulos in Philadelphia. It was billed as "The President and the People" and described as a forum to provide "uncommitted voters" an opportunity to ask questions on issues affecting Americans. While Stephanopoulos described each questioner as undecided, they all appeared to have a criticism of the current administration. Did ABC ambush the President last night?
