FROM Julia Belluz
InfoWars and the politics of health conspiracies Alex Jones is the host of Info Wars , a far-right YouTube channel famous for conspiracy theories. President Trump has shared links, making it more influential. One overlooked element is the site's "health and medicine" news. Julia Belluz, who covers health and science for Vox , watched many hours of Info Wars and joins us for the first installment of our series, "The Emotional States of America."
Will the Senate write a healthcare bill in secret? While Democrats and Republicans argue White House relations with Russia, another question is being decided behind closed doors: who gets help buying health insurance and who doesn't? We hear how the pros and cons are being shrouded in secrecy.
What happens when America retreats from the world? Is President Trump taking his "America First" agenda to extremes, withdrawing the country from the international stage on trade and climate change, distancing America from its traditional allies across the Atlantic and even threatening to physically isolate the country through the building of a wall along its southern border? León Krauze guest hosts.
