MSNBC Anchor Richard Lui takes us Behind the Story – to show us how to revisit and follow up on a story that made national headlines. Lui recently traveled to Atlanta, Georgia to follow up on the mass shooting at a spa in Atlanta on March 16 that left eight dead – six of the victims were Asian women. In our latest video, Lui explains the challenges and opportunities that exist when following up on a story, and how to successfully pitch a follow-up story.
