100 Years After WW1; Matthew Whitaker; Doctored Videos
This weekend was the 100th anniversary of the end of World War I. World leaders convened in Paris and listened to French president Emmanuel Macron warn against reviving the "old demons" of nationalism that led to our first world war.
We'll look at whether World War I was a necessary and noble measure to maintain a global world order or a war that was both senseless and the impetus for World War II. Should we honor the dissidents and resistors who who foresaw the tragic consequences instead of battle commanders who some say recklessly led their troops to death?
Also this hour: Will the appointment of Matthew Whitaker as acting Attorney General lead to a slow-moving Watergate?
Lastly, we've established that the video released by the White House of the exchange between CNN reporter Jim Acosta and a White House intern was clearly doctored. The bigger problem is that technology may soon make it more difficult to discern real photos from fake ones.
