The cast of Clint Eastwood's "Richard Jewell" is speaking out about the recent controversy surrounding the film's portrayal of Kathy Scruggs, a journalist involved in the coverage of the 1996 Centennial Olympic Park bombing.

This story was originally published in the December 12 edition of CNN's Meanwhile in America, the daily email about US politics for global readers. Sign up here to receive it every weekday morning. (CNN)If today were Election Day in the US, rival candidates would be blasting out hours-long TV and radio blitzes to drive every last vote to the polls in key battlegrounds. But this Thursday, after the most bitter election campaign in decades, a spectral silence will cloak the British isles -- at least until 10 p.m., when voting ends. Britain imposes an election day broadcasting blackout on political coverage that might influence voters. Such regulations seem archaic in a social media age, but the UK is not alone: In Australia, political advertising is banned for several days before the polls open.

Adam: Hi, Frank. I thought we’d start our conversation this week with a discussion of your cover story, “Obama’s Original Sin,” the first monthly essay you’ve written for New York. It’s a pretty scathing indictment of the Wall Street culture that pulverized the economy. You make the case that the country hasn’t been able to recover from the crimes — moral and otherwise — leading up to the crash. And you lay a considerable amount of blame for that on Barack Obama. I don’t think I’ve ever read you be this hard on Obama before.Frank: I have been hard on him at times, but I think what has increased the stakes is the reality, which I’d previously discounted, that he might actually lose the election. At least four swing states that he won last time, from Nevada to Florida, have higher unemployment rates than the national average. Adam: So all right: a harrowing election, probably as close as the Bush elections … [Read more...] about Frank Rich and Adam Moss Talk About Obama, Wall Street, and Dominique Strauss-Kahn’s Reversal of Fortune

close Video Rep. Jim Banks: 'Shame on Speaker Pelosi' for politicizing impeachment and USMCA Rep. Jim Banks (R-IN) shares his reaction to the House Judiciary Committee issuing two articles of impeachment against President Trump for Abuse of Power and Obstruction of Congress. He also weighs in on the GOP's biggest takeaways from the impeachment inquiry. Donald Trump certainly is mercurial at times. He can be uncouth. But then again, no president in modern memory has been on the receiving end of such overwhelmingly negative media coverage and a three-year effort to abort his presidency, beginning the day after his election.
