Here and Now

June 29, 2018: Hour 2

A shooting in the newsroom of The Capital Gazette in Annapolis on Thursday left five people dead and several more seriously injured. NPR media correspondent David Folkenflik joins us to discuss how it's also reignited conversation about recent political attacks on journalists and the media. Also, Justice Anthony Kennedy's announcement he will retire from the Supreme Court sets up a fierce battle between Democrats and Republicans over his replacement — and caps a contentious term for the court. And poet Donald Hall died this week at 89, near Wilmot, New Hampshire, where he lived on his family's farm. Here & Now's Robin Young remembers Hall's life and poetry, and revisits a 2006 interview with the former U.S. poet laureate. That and more, in hour two of Here & Now's June 29, 2018 full broadcast.
