Bipartisan deal struck to fund government through September 6 MIN, 32 SEC

Congressional leaders of both parties have agreed to a $1.1 trillion spending program. According to Bloomberg, it "largely tracks Democratic priorities and rejects most of President Donald Trump's wish list." David Hawkins, senior editor at Roll Call, has details.

Ann Coulter: Now you see her… now you don't 33 MIN, 26 SEC

Ann Coulter is a right-wing provocateur who was scheduled to speak last week at UC Berkeley, where the "Free Speech Movement" began in the 1960s. University officials say they cancelled her appearance due to fear of violent protest — then re-invited her at a quieter time on campus.  After angry exchanges about hypocrisy and media manipulation, Coulter rejected their invitation. That set off an angry dispute reflected on other campuses as well, based on conservative claims that institutions of higher learning are bastions of liberal thinking that won’t tolerate anything else. Are students being shielded from challenging ideas — or are ideological agitators using the threat of violence to market their way of thinking?

Trump invites Duterte to White House sparking controversy 9 MIN, 15 SEC

Speaking to a group of Filipino workers returning from overseas a year ago, the president of the Philippines, Rodrigo Duterte, told them, "If you lose your job, I'll give you one.  Kill all the drug addicts."  In June, he said, "If you know of any addicts, go ahead and kill them yourself as getting their parents to do it would be too painful."  Some eight or nine thousand Filipinos have died in extra-judicial killings. Now, President Trump has invited Duterte to visit the White House, after a phone call described as "warm" by Trump's aides. Phelim Kine, deputy director of the Asia Division of Human Rights Watch, considers the controversial invitation.
