Lead Poison: America's "Silent Epidemic" Lead in the water supply has created a public health crisis in Flint, Michigan -- and provided a wake-up call to the rest of the country. The water supplied by some 2000 water districts around the US is contaminated with lead. For decades, a powerful industry pushed for the use of lead pipes in buildings, including schools and private homes. Lead in the drinking water can cause organ damage and mental disabilities in children, and it’s well known that there’s no safe level. So how was a national crisis allowed to occur — and what’s to be done?
Truth and Lies in Trumpland Donald Trump is using mis-information like no President has before him. It's an unprecedented challenge to the news media, and a potential threat to democracy. We hear how the "leader of all the people" is dividing Americans and confusing the rest of the world.
100 days of executive action: Accomplishment or posturing? President Trump's first 100 days have featured a flood of high-profile executive orders. Which ones do what he says they do, and which ones don't? How are Trump voters feeling now?
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.
White House flip flops: NATO, Syria and China In less than 100 days, President Trump has contradicted himself on a host of foreign policy issues — Syria, NATO, China and Vladimir Putin’s Russia. Is it a strength — or a weakness — for the United States when the world of power politics never knows what to expect?
