by caprecord

On “The Impact” this week, hear from the family of one of the underage girls who was trafficked for sex on the Backpage website. A lawyer for the girl argued before the Washington Supreme Court on Tuesday that the website is responsible for some of its content. Backpage contends that it is immune under a federal communications law.

Also on the show, details about the new screening measures in place to monitor travelers coming to Washington from Ebola outbreak zones. Host Anita Kissee interviews Kathy Lofy, the communicable diseases epidemiologist with Washington’s Dept. of Health.

More information about Washington’s efforts to stop the Ebola outbreak can be found on the department’s website.

The show airs Wednesday Oct. 22 at 7 & 10 p.m. We’ll post a link here once it is available online.
