PHILADELPHIA (KYW Newsradio) — This week on Flashpoint: Host and KYW Community Affairs reporter Cherri Gregg asks the burning questions about President Donald Trump's recent diss to the Super Bowl-winning Eagles. 

We get local reaction from all sides and dig into some of the legal implications of a president throwing his weight around the center of public debate.  

Gregg also sits down with Philadelphia civil rights attorney Riley Ross, former prosecutor and defense attorney-turned-blogger George Parry, and retired Temple basketball coach John Chaney.  

The newsmaker of the week: a Philadelphia man who spent 25 years behind bars for a crime he did not commit. 

Anthony Wright Sr. made headlines this week for settling a civil claim against the city for $10 million. His case, his future and the heartbreaking thing he plans to buy first with his settlement money is available via the podcast below. 

Finally, the change-maker of the week is Philadelphia Fight. Gregg sits down with the nonprofit's leaders to discuss their initiatives for AIDS Education Month.

Flashpoint airs every Saturday at 9:30 p.m. and Sunday at 8:30 a.m. on KYW Newsradio 1060AM. Subscribe to the Flashpoint podcast on iTunes, via the Radio.com app or other podcast platforms.
