California approves most ambitious climate law in the US 6 MIN, 30 SEC

In 2006, California's Governor — Republican Arnold Schwarzenegger -- signed a comprehensive measure to reduce greenhouse gases. Today, Democratic Governor Jerry Brown signed a bill to extend and expand that law — maintaining California's national leadership against climate change. We hear more about the new bill from Melanie Mason, who reports from Sacramento for the Los Angeles Times.

The candidates, up close and personal but light on policy 34 MIN, 30 SEC

Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump were in the same place, but not at the same time. Even so, it's being called a preview of the formal debates to come. The topic was National Security, but NBC's Matt Lauer is taking heat for dwelling on Clinton's e-mails and failing to call Trump on misrepresentations.

That's renewed debate about coverage of the campaign, with reporters accused of giving minor issues "false equivalence" with major ones. We hear what the candidates said that was new about national security. Did anything happen that might change voters' minds one way or the other?

Discrimination, especially regarding race, is a problem in America’s growing sharing economy.  Unwelcome or rejected customers of Airbnb have complained about discrimination based on gender, age and disabilities. Today, in response to complaints, Airbnb has announced new rules, but it won’t abandon the requirement that prospective renters submit profile photos. Emily Badger, who reports for the Washington Post, says the new rules send an important message.
