Will Hollywood Ever Make Way for Women? The Directors Guild of America, the DGA — has published its first annual Feature Film Diversity Report . Out of 376 films made during 2013 and 2014, 82% were directed by white males. Minority males got 11% of the top jobs. But women directed films -- big and small -- just 6% of the time. Kim Masters is editor-at-large for the Hollywood Reporter and host of KCRW's The Business .
Rhetoric and brinksmanship on the Korean Peninsula For 25 years, the US has viewed North Korea's nuclear program with increasing alarm. Now President Trump says this country has lost its "strategic patience." We hear what he's actually doing… and what might come next.

Other conflicts are already obvious from his appointments. And he's being sued for using his job to increase his profits.
