Possible Executive Action on Guns, and Reworked Fairy Tales

Hosted by

Today, we start with a two-part look at some of the points President Obama hit in his speech last night. First, could he take some kind of executive action on gun control? Then, the president says we should not get into a ground war with ISIS in Syria and Iraq; what should we do instead?

Next, a look at Ed Blum, the conservative activist behind several big Supreme Court cases.

After that we speak with author Michael Cunningham about his latest book, which reworks classic fairy tales to give them a dose of reality.

And finally, in our regular Monday TV segment, a preview of the second season of “Transparent,” plus more.
