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?
White House budget proposal slashes and burns President Trump's first budget request is considered dead on arrival in Congress — a familiar development in Capitol Hill. We hear what it reveals about the priorities of the new administration. What's likely to die… and what might survive?
Is the threat from Russia missing from the Russia meddling probe? There's much being made about the Trump administration's possible ties with Russia. But the bottom line is Russia's effort to influence American democracy. Do the President and his aides care enough to take action before voters go back to the polls?
What happens when America retreats from the world?
