Are the Kids on the Internet Alright After All? A generation of teens lives more in the virtual world than the real one and adult anxiety is producing calls for a crackdown on social networking sites. But Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and Instagram are now the places where kids can do what kids always do: hang out with their peers. They may give up their privacy, submit to commercial exploitation and become vulnerable to cyber-bullying, but researchers say that's not the whole story. We hear from one who's embedded herself with teenagers and reports on how the world looks from their point of view.
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.

León Krauze guest hosts.
