Diane Rehm And A Bungled Interview With Senator Bernie Sanders

Diane RehmAnother week, another Bernie Sanders column. And this time the issue is far more serious than repeatedly being called a "long shot."

Listeners are mad, and rightly so, about Diane Rehm's Wednesday interview with the Vermont senator, who is running for the Democratic nomination for president.

The BBC braces for the fight of its life

BBC fighting for its lifeA majority Conservative government was the outcome that Europe’s largest public broadcaster dreaded most.

And Prime Minister David Cameron had not even finished announcing his new Cabinet this week when the British press declared his government at war with the BBC.

The appointment of John Whittingdale, a Conservative stalwart and former adviser to Margaret Thatcher, as the minister overseeing broadcasting policy was, to hear the UK media tell it, the opening barrage in what will be a brutal fight about the corporation’s future over the next 18 months.
