To Publish or Not to Publish: Charlie Hebdo and American Media American news media are divided over whether to publish the images that infuriated Muslim extremists and apparently led to yesterday's massacre at Charlie Hebdo. The Washington Post has published a cartoon of the Prophet Mohammed saying "100 lashes of the whip if you don't die laughing." The Associated Press, the New York Times, CNN and NBC have declined to publish similar images. What's the relationship between journalism and satire? Do journalists need to take risks in support of satire?
Trump's 'America First' goes missing abroad In the Middle East, President Trump is changing some policies of the Obama Administration—and reversing his own campaign attacks on Islam as a religion that "hates us." We hear about his visit to Saudi Arabia and what's at stake for the rest of his foreign excursion.
Replacing Obamacare: Now you see it… now you don’t As the Senate deliberates replacing Obmacare, health coverage for millions of people is at stake. There've been no public hearings, and a draft measure won't be made public. Is the House version so unpopular that that Senate is hiding a version that looks much the same?
What is Trump's plan for Middle East peace? On his first foreign tour, President Trump has promised "peace" between Israel and the Palestinians. Are there any details for re-starting talks that have been stalled for the past three years?

On this Memorial Day rebroadcast of To the Point, we hear what’s happened to what once was a model of American middle-class unity.
