NFL: the 'Nonprofit Football League' The National Football League is a tax-exempt nonprofit — even though it makes $10 billion in revenue every year. Individual teams are taxed, but they're also heavily subsidized by states and cities across the country, enriching their wealthy owners. Nobody knows if Sunday's 48th Super Bowl at MetLife Stadium, the most expensive in history, will compensate New Jersey taxpayers for security, transportation and trash collection. We debate the public cost of America's newest "national pastime."
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?
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.

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.
What happens when America retreats from the world?
