July 30, 2018: Hour 1

Firefighters continue to battle the Carr Fire, which has burned more than 95,000 acres in Northern California and killed at least six people. KQED reporter Danielle Venton joins us for an update. Also, it was a normal day in May 2008 when helicopters surrounded the tiny town of Postville, Iowa. Then about 1,000 ICE agents descended on a meatpacking plant in the town. And last week social media companies Facebook and Twitter both saw big drops in their stock price. As the companies face challenges with fake users and "fake news," we look at the big picture for social media and advertising with The Atlantic's Derek Thompson. That and more, in hour one of Here & Now's July 30, 2018 full broadcast.
