Hosted by

Fifteen years after measles was declared eradicated in the United States, more than 70 people have come down with the disease — an outbreak that started at Disneyland. It's not enough cases to be a real epidemic.

Also, after the death of King Abdullah, a Saudi succession plan unfolds. On today's Talking Point, can Facebook crack down on fake news without silencing satire?
