Hour 1:
How different parts of US define fake news. The California Democrat said the tax cuts signed by President Donald Trump mostly benefited the wealthy while tossing “bread crumbs” to lower-income taxpayers. “For one thing, it’s a very, very big deal,” a Trump voter named Sue told Fox News about the $1,000 bonus she got from her employer, Walmart. “When you work for a company and they want to give you $1,000 just because our president gave them a tax break, to me it’s a big deal.” Fox News did not publish a story the network had on an alleged sexual relationship between President Trump and adult-film actress Stephanie Clifford during the 2016 presidential election, according to a new report. CNN reports that Fox News reporter Diana Falzone wrote a story a month before voters went to the polls in 2016 on the alleged relationship between Trump and Clifford, whose stage name is “Stormy Daniels."

Hour 2:
The Trump administration is poised to overhaul the HHS civil rights office as part of a broader plan to protect health workers who don't want to perform abortions, treat transgender patients seeking to transition or provide other services for which they have religious or moral objections. Under a proposed rule — which has been closely guarded at HHS and is now under review by the White House — the civil rights office would be empowered to further shield these workers and punish organizations that don’t allow them to express their religious and moral objections, according to sources on and off the Hill. That would be a significant shift for the office, which currently focuses on enforcing federal civil rights and health care privacy laws. North and South Korea have had diplomatic talks and will have a unified team in a sport for the first time.
