FROM Lynsey Addario
Photojournalist Lynsey Addario: "It's What I Do" New York Times photojournalist Lynsey Addario was already well known for pictures from war zones and other troubled places when she was kidnapped in Libya four years ago. She was held for a week with other journalists, then finally released. That close call inspired her to become a mother — but not to quit her dangerous job. "While covering war, there were days when I had boundless courage and there were days… when I was terrified from the moment I woke up." That's a passage from Addario's new memoir It's What I Do: A Photographer's life of Love and War . All photos courtesy of Lynsey Addario.
Is the threat from Russia missing from the Russia meddling probe? There's much being made about the Trump administration's possible ties with Russia.

Human Rights in the era of Donald Trump President Trump’s UN Ambassador, Nikki Haley, said today the US might pull out of the United Nations’ Human Rights Council. Serious violators of human rights are members of the Council itself–and a US resignation could make things worse. Later on today’s show, now that he’s into his second term, comedian turned US Senator Al Franken is telling jokes again.
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?
