The Future of Newspapers in California More and more Californians are getting their news on the Internet, which means they're getting for free what it costs newspapers a lot of money to gather and publish. In the last six months, the Los Angeles Times lost 11% of its daily circulation, the Daily News was down 26%, the Orange County Register was off 10% and the Riverside Press-Enterprise 24%. The San Francisco Chronicle was down more than 25%, but claims revenue is going up.
The Mayor and The TV Reporter If you haven’t been watching, reading, or listening to the local news media, this is the week that Mayor Villaraigosa told a news conference about his affair with Mirthala Salinas , 2-time Emmy award winning anchor-reporter at Spanish-language Channel 52, Telemundo .
The Trump agenda: where's the beef? President Trump says big things are happening. After celebrating a House bill on health care, he doesn’t yet have Senate agreement. With James Comey’s public testimony scheduled tomorrow, the President today tweeted his selection of a new FBI Director. Is the Chief Executive all style and no substance? Later, terror attacks in Iran and conflicting claims about who’s behind them.
What happens when America retreats from the world? Is President Trump taking his "America First" agenda to extremes, withdrawing the country from the international stage on trade and climate change, distancing America from its traditional allies across the Atlantic and even threatening to physically isolate the country through the building of a wall along its southern border? León Krauze guest hosts.
Terrorism and tweets, hate speech and murder Just days before an election, Britain is coping with a rash of deadly terrorism, and Prime Minister Theresa May is on the defensive. And again today, President Trump has tweeted criticism of the Mayor of London. Later, a double murder in Portland, Oregon has revealed the ugly past of a supposedly “progressive” city. One immediate question: is “hate speech” protected by the First Amendment?
Venezuela spirals into economic and political chaos Venezuela, a country whose potential for prosperity is unmatched, finds itself on the verge of civil war. What sustains the repressive government? With time running out, guest host León Krauze looks at what the international community can do to pull the country from the edge of collapse.
