Schism in the House of Saud?

While Saudi Arabia appears to be drawing closer and closer to Israel, one member of the royal family, Prince Turki al-Faisel, doesn't seem on board with the budding alliance, as evidenced by recent fiery remarks at a Bahrain security summit. Meanwhile, Iran continues to lean into its nuclear option, and is believed to be rebuilding an underground uranium-enrichment site to this end. Middle East analyst Keto Saadilla joins News.Views.Hughes to share his insights.

Then investigative journalist Ben Swann joins to discuss Facebook’s latest escalation of censorship against so-called hate speech and the inherent political biases coming into play when speech is censored online.

Meanwhile in the United States, city and state leaders from Colorado to California to Texas are enduring intense criticism for enjoying holiday travel while urging their constituents to stay home, and NY Young Republicans are in the spotlight for flouting social-distancing guidelines at a large holiday party in New Jersey. Vish Burra, Vice President of the New York Young Republicans, and civil rights attorney Robert Patillo weigh in on the controversy.
