The Benefits and the Risks of Internet Freedom French President Nicolas Sarkozy says the Internet is so pervasive that governments must regulate it or face what he calls "anarchy." At his so-called eG8 summit , he got push-back from the leaders of Amazon, Facebook and Google, and from other heads of state as well. The pervasiveness of the Internet has empowered millions of people and made it a force for democracy, but it's also a threat to privacy, intellectual property rights, national security and social morality. If they're left alone, will private Internet companies use that power for their own interests? What benefits might be lost if governments decide to step in?
What is Trump's plan for Middle East peace? On his first foreign tour, President Trump has promised "peace" between Israel and the Palestinians. Are there any details for re-starting talks that have been stalled for the past three years?
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.
Ex-FBI Director Comey tells his side of the story Today, former FBI Director James Comey came close to calling the President who fired him a liar. The White House denied the claim and called it insulting, but Republican Senators did not challenge Comey’s truthfulness. Many questions remain: did the President try to obstruct a federal investigation? Later, we’ll go behind the “velvet rope” for a look at 5-Star health care for the richest Americans.
