FROM David Holbrooke
The Life and Legacy of Diplomat Richard Holbrooke After 50 years as an American diplomat, Richard Holbrooke is most famous for helping Bill Clinton end the bloody Bosnian War. Now his son has come to know his father better in death than he did in life by making a documentary that debuts November 2 on HBO . Richard Holbrook wrote his first autobiography at the age of 14. At the age of 69, he was making tapes for a follow-up when he suddenly died in the midst of an extraordinary career. He was serving as President Obama's Special Envoy to Afghanistan and Pakistan. David Holbrooke is the son of Richard Holbrooke and the festival director of Telluride Mountainfilm. He's also the director of The Diplomat .
Terrorism and tweets, hate speech and murder Just days before an election, Britain is coping with a rash of deadly terrorism, and Prime Minister Theresa May is on the defensive. And again today, President Trump has tweeted criticism of the Mayor of London. Later, a double murder in Portland, Oregon has revealed the ugly past of a supposedly “progressive” city. One immediate question: is “hate speech” protected by the First Amendment?
Human Rights in the era of Donald Trump President Trump’s UN Ambassador, Nikki Haley, said today the US might pull out of the United Nations’ Human Rights Council. Serious violators of human rights are members of the Council itself–and a US resignation could make things worse. Later on today’s show, now that he’s into his second term, comedian turned US Senator Al Franken is telling jokes again.
