How do we protect whistleblowers?

Holland Cooke talks with former FBI special agent Coleen Rowley about her experience as a 9/11 whistleblower, and how the treatment of whistleblowers by our government and news networks may be hindering others from coming forward. Amid the media firestorm that has enveloped Trump’s impeachment proceedings and the now-infamous Ukraine whistleblower, what protections are offered to public servants who would risk their careers for the sake of transparency?

Holland Cooke talks shop with former Pentagon official Michael Maloof about Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s recent visit to the White House. With the Turkish incursion on Kurdish-populated Syrian regions now on hold, as well as the sale of F-35 jets from America to Turkey being suspended, was Trump’s sit-down with his Turkish counterpart just another way to diplomatically kick the can down the road?

Also, investigative journalist Ben Swann joins the show to discuss the plethora of streaming services hitting our devices in the coming months. Disney recently rolled out its humbly priced alternative to streaming behemoth Netflix, leaving many of us wondering just how the world of streaming is about to change. Half a dozen platforms are clamoring for star-studded content to attract viewers, but could consumers actually end up paralyzed by indecision?
