Harvey Hits Hard | The News And Your Newsfeed

A monster storm like Hurricane Harvey hasn't hit the Gulf Coast in almost a decade. At least eight people have died in the storm and more than 2,000 people have had to be rescued in Houston alone. We hear more about the storm with Ayan Mittra, editor of The Texas Tribune, Gail Delaughter, reporter at KUHF Houston Public Media, Barry Scanlon, former FEMA advisor and Steve Ellis of Taxpayers for Common Sense. Then we hear a conversation from the Aspen Ideas Festival between 1A host Joshua Johnson and former network news anchor Campbell Brown. Brown discusses her new role at Facebook and the social network's role as a news source.
