A new president. What comes next? 40 MIN, 21 SEC

For the 45th time, America has accomplished a peaceful transition of power-- leaving the country with a sense of uncertainty about the future. President Donald Trump's inaugural address repeated familiar themes from his campaign for office. The President painted a dark picture of the nation's current condition, and promised to disempower the Washington elite — but he was short on specifics. Did he reassure the majority of Americans who voted for Hillary Clinton?

The press under attack by the Trump Administration 9 MIN, 25 SEC

President Donald Trump is the least popular incoming chief executive in recent history — and he's publicly declared that the news media are part of the opposition. Will the White House Press Corps be looking for a new home?

One un-named Trump official has said, "We want reporters out of the building." That's raised a provocative question: does the White House Press Corps have a future? If not, Kyle Pope, the Editor in Chief and Publisher of the Columbia Journalism Review has a surprising answer: that might be a good thing.
