Robert Durst and the Death of Susan Berman Real estate heir and suspected murderer Robert Durst agreed to waive extradition to Los Angeles today after being arrested in New Orleans over the weekend for the murder of Susan Berman 15 years ago. The arrest came after a shocking turn on Sunday’s finale to the HBO six-part documentary series The Jinx, which featured Durst’s first-ever interviews. In last night’s episode, Jinx director Andrew Jarecki confronted Durst with a piece of incriminating new evidence that appears to link Durst to the murder of Susan Berman in Los Angeles 15 years ago. Then, Durst went to use the bathroom, not realizing his microphone was still on, and muttered to himself what sounded like a confession. We revisit Berman’s death with a writer who researched it extensively.
Why is Trump so behind on filling staff jobs, establishing concrete policies? Yesterday Donald Trump signed a “decision memo” to revamp the air traffic control system. But there was little legislative detail in the plan. There’s not much to other splashy announcements from the White House, including tax cuts and the arms deal with Saudi Arabia. And hundreds of positions are unfilled in federal agencies.
What did Trump accomplish on his first trip abroad? President Trump is wrapping up his Mideast and European tour. We find out what he has accomplished -- good and bad -- and look at what he faces when he comes home.

In 'Speechless,' Scott Silveri combines comedy, family & disability Scott Silveri has written and produced sitcoms for more than 20 years. In all that time, he never encountered a TV family that looked anything like the one he grew up in -- with a mom, a dad...and a brother with cerebral palsy. He changed that with his show Speechless on ABC. Silveri tells us about looking to his own past for stories, and why he was determined to make a family comedy and not just a "disability show."
