Harvey Weinstein: The end… or just the beginning? In 1975, the term "sexual harassment" was first used in public — giving women a word for what was happening in the workplace — and the potential for change. Government institutions and corporations formally banned it. Lawyers helped settle cases. Harvey Weinstein declared himself a "feminist." But changing the rules did not change the power dynamics. Now, revelations about Weinstein and others have made that reality undeniable. In 24 hours, millions of women around the world posted, "Me Too." Is it finally time for men to join the struggle for change?
Terrorism and tweets, hate speech and murder Just days before an election, Britain is coping with a rash of deadly terrorism, and Prime Minister Theresa May is on the defensive. And again today, President Trump has tweeted criticism of the Mayor of London. Later, a double murder in Portland, Oregon has revealed the ugly past of a supposedly “progressive” city. One immediate question: is “hate speech” protected by the First Amendment?

We hear about his visit to Saudi Arabia and what's at stake for the rest of his foreign excursion.
