Serena looks at coverage of and reaction to the murder of a trans woman, Brooklyn BreYanna Stevenson. Updates and comments about the OKC mayoral race, Special Session 2.0, and Devon Energy blocking access to Red Dirt Report, a local online news outlet. Reports about OGE getting $14 million of MAPS 3 monies, and an earthquake damage lawsuit filed against oil companies in Cushing.
