Paris Shooting Update, the Literal Bank of America, and Parental Panic

Hosted by  • 

We start with a two-part look at the shooting deaths of 12 people in the offices of the French satirical newspaper Charlie Hebdo. First, an update on what we know about the incident and the manhunt for the shooters. Then, a history of the paper and its controversies over the year. Next, how did the U.S. federal government become the nation’s largest creditor? After that, author Claude Knobler talks about his new book, a memoir about adopting a son from Ethiopia and how the experience changed his approach as a parent. And finally, in our regular parenting segment, the challenges of limiting children’s screen time and the legalities of spanking.

Hooded gunmen stormed on Wednesday the Paris offices of Charlie Hebdo (Charlie Weekly) a weekly satirical magazine known for lampooning radical Islam, killing at least 12 people, including two police officers in the worst militant attack on French soil in recent decades. A police union official said the assailants remained at liberty and there were fears of further attacks. REUTERS/Fabrizio Bensch
