KNX InDepth (June 20, 2018)
He swore he could do nothing....beyond his power as President. All up to the Democrats and Congress. Yet, today, President Trump did an about face--under wilting criticism from Democrats and Republicans alike--and signed an executive order that would, in many, though not all, cases keep immigrant families entering the US illegally together in detention. We will go In Depth to find out what happened. Also, what happens to the kids already separated from parents who have been deported , leaving their children behind. We'll try to get answers to that, too. Later on the show, LAUSD in financial crisis. Says it may need to lay off teachers and shut schools. But there may be an answer. And , yes, it involves more money. And, yes, it involved more taxes, and yes, if you live in LA County, it may come out of YOUR pocket. We will go In Depth on that.
And, while the latest Jurassic Park movie is set to open this weekend, scientists say they may soon actually be able to recreate real, living dinosaurs from-----ready for this----the DNA from chicken. You may never think of that buffalo wing the same way again.

KNX Indepth (June 19, 2018)
The noise is getting louder in Washington... as more lawmakers hear from constituents who do not like the policy of separating families at the border with Mexico. We go In-Depth on what action is being taken. Also today... George Takei... Mr. Sulu on Star Trek... is watching what's going on at the border with a unique perspective. He was 5-years-old when his family was sent to a Japanese-American internment camp during World War Two... but they were allowed to stay together. Later... we look ahead at what the president's end game might be for China tariffs. And then... we're joined in studio by actor, director, producer Todd Fisher, who's written a book about his mother Debbie Reynolds and his sister Carrie Fisher.

KNX Indepth (June 18, 2018)
"Give me your tired... your poor." That's the welcoming message on the Statue of Liberty... but the message at the U-S border with Mexico is very different. People who arrive seeking asylum or try to cross illegally are being placed in detention... parents and children are separated... some are even being held in cages. Officials say it's a deterrent... but others say it's cruel. Later... we'll be talking about 'gaming disorder,' which the World Health Organization now says is a real mental health condition. And then... there's a warning that a new movie could cause some people who watch it to have a seizure!

KNX Indepth (June 15, 2018)
It's not every day a former presidential campaign manager ends up behind bars. It apparently hasn't happened since John Mitchell went to prison... he had directed Richard Nixon's campaign. Today, former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort was ordered to jail... so we speak with John Dean, White House counsel to President Nixon. Also... we talk with a reporter who the president called obnoxious because she was trying to get answers to some very serious questions. Later... whether President Trump is correct in blaming the Democrats when children get separated from their parents seeking asylum at our border... an unusual recall of cereal... and why Covered California might raise healthcare premiums.

KNX InDepth (June 14, 2018)
This is a very bad day for the FBI. A long anticipated report from the Justice Department's independent Inspector General ---while finding no bias or reason for criminal prosecution--takes aim first at fired director James Comey's decision to reopen the investigation into Hillary Clinton's private email server days before the election. And second, is critical of text messages between two FBI agents working that investigation---messages saying they will stop Trump from being elected. So, we will go In Depth. Later, if you are at work, count how many are in the room with you right now. We'll tell you why that may be important later on. Also on the show, New York's Attorney General slaps the Trump Foundation with a lawsuit claiming the so-called charitable foundation engaged in illegal conduct over many years. We will also go In Depth on the controversy over President Trump saluting a North Korean general. And, what to wear if you are a pregnant MAN!

KNX Indepth (June 13, 2018)
There have been 200 attempts since the founding of the state of California to divide it in half or into thirds. They all clearly failed. Yet, there will be another such effort on the November ballot. We go In-Depth on this state's mania for ballot initiatives. Then... up in the sky. Was it a bird... or a plane? No... it was a building-climbing raccoon that's become an Internet sensation. Also on today's show... political party or cult of personality? Some say the GOP is now firmly the party of Donald Trump and woe to anyone who tries to get in his way. We also look ahead at the men's World Cup Soccer tournament coming to North America - and Los Angeles - in 2026.

It's not an easy time to head a big city police department. Some might say you have to be crazy to want to do it. But someone has to... and some people even look forward to the challenge. Michel Moore is the LAPD veteran who will meet that challenge in the coming years as the department's newly appointed chief, replacing the retiring Charlie Beck. We speak with the new chief about his plans for the third largest municipal police department in the nation with regard to racism, immigration, community policing, new technology and much more.

KNX InDepth (June 11, 2018)
If only you could get your hands on a history book of the future. Would the chapter on the summit meeting of President Trump and North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un be titled--Masterstroke of diplomacy.....or unmitigated disaster? We don't , of course, know, yet. But one thing is for sure. It is likely to be must watch TV. So, we will go In Depth. Also, is this country at war with.....Canada. All those super nice people. Land of great ski slopes. Don't forget Maple Syrup. Well, to hear the President and his aides tell it---almost sounds as if we are. We'll go In Depth on that, too. Then we'll talk with one of the American sailors who survived nearly a year of prison and torture in North Korea, when his spy boat, the USS Pueblo, was captured back in 1968; he's hoping President Trump gets that boat back. And then IHOP temporarily changes its name to IHOB, just to sell some hamburgers--brilliant marketing strategy on the part of IHOP, or a really, really dumb branding idea?
Friday, June 8th
KNX InDepth (June 8, 2018)
And today---it's Anthony Bourdain. The second time this week a celebrity has apparently succumbed to suicide. This comes against the backdrop of news this week that suicide rates are up dramatically across the U.S. over the past 20 years. We will go In Depth on all of this. Also, there are new indictments in the ongoing investigation into Russian interference in the presidential election. Conspiracy the main charge this time. Also, two children who took getting even to new heights--or in this case---new lows. Talk about being the odd man out. President Trump is in Canada for the G7 meeting with our allies. Only, our allies aren't feeling all warm and fuzzy right now about Mr Trump. And, Mr Trump, it is fair to say, seems to feel the same way. We will go In Depth on that. Also on the show, promises of new technology to prevent school shootings. Only, are they empty promises? We will go In Depth and find out.

KNX InDepth (June 7, 2018)
The case for possible life on Mars---now or in the distant past--just got a whole lot stronger. NASA has announced the Curiosity Rover has discovered the best evidence yet of what could be the building blocks of life in ancient Martian rocks. Organic compounds. A separate discovery of a seasonal variation in the release of Methane from the Martian surface has added to the excitement among scientists. We will go In Depth. Also, the giant Chinese telecommunications company once called a national security threat to the United States, will now be permitted to do business with us. The LAUSD school board wants to make it possible for every student who wants to , to get a four year university education. But is THAT a wise priority? Especially when the value of a four year college degree is increasingly being questioned. We will go In Depth on that. And, forget about the Russia investigation or possible obstruction of justice. President Trump MAY get summoned to testify on behalf of............Colin Kapernick. And later, can you program artificial intelligence to commit murder? We'll have the surprising answer.
Wednesday, June 6th
KNX Indepth (June 6, 2018)
Democrats are hoping for a big, blue wave this November to take back the House. Republicans are hoping the wave crests early enough to stop that from happening. California is the beachfront where everyone is looking at that wave... but what actually happened in yesterday's primary voting here? Also on today's show... designer Kate Spade apparently took her own life with depression the root cause. What can you can do if you need help... or if someone close to you does? We also ask why Attorney General Jeff Sessions is still on the job when his boss keeps blasting him publicly on Twitter. And then... would you wear shoes that are ALIVE!!!! We'll explain!
Tuesday, June 5th
KNX Indepth (June 5, 2018)
The Senate will not be taking its annual August recess... it's been canceled for what the Majority Leader calls Democrats' "historic obstruction." Also today... following the president's rescinding of his invitation for a visit by the NFL's Philadelphia Eagles, basketball stars Steph Curry and LeBron James say their teams, which are in the NBA finals, will not go to the White House even if they're invited. We talk with a former Watergate prosecutor about the special counsel's investigation into Paul Manafort... we find out why the new Star Wars movie is doing so badly at the box office. And then... a conversation with one of Robert Kennedy's daughters... 50 years after he was assassinated in Los Angeles.
Monday, June 4th
KNX Indepth (June 4, 2018)
The Supreme Court has ruled that a Colorado baker does NOT have to make a wedding cake for a gay couple. But the ruling is very specific to this one case. We talk with an expert. Then... another expert... about President Trump's claim that he can pardon himself, can open or close any federal investigation and cannot possibly obstruct justice because, in effect, he IS justice as head of the executive branch. Also today... a new study says some women with early stage breast cancer should NOT have chemo. And... Facebook is in the news again because it may have shared too much information with companies that make our smart phones.
Friday, June 1st
KNX Indepth (June 1, 2018)
Is there a double standard? Roseanne Barr says her racist tweet about an advisor to former President Obama was 'ambien tweeting at 2am.' Her TV show... canceled. Samantha Bee uses an obscene word to describe President Trump's daughter Ivanka... but her TV show is still on the air. Also today, that Korean summit that President Trump announced, then canceled, is ON again. We'll also be talking about why presidents - except President Trump - don't discuss the Labor Department's unemployment numbers until after the stock market opens. And then... last night's slow-speed police pursuit of a man in a stolen car in the San Fernando Valley. Lots of people went outside, some even tried to help police stop the guy!
Thursday, May 31st
KNX Indepth (May 31, 2018)
The trade war is on! President Trump has slapped tariffs on steel and aluminum imports from the European Union, Canada and Mexico. And, in turn, those countries are threatening to impose their own tariffs on goods made and grown in America. Also today... there are questions after the president pardoned a conservative commentator who pleaded guilty to campaign finance fraud. We'll also be talking about how the networks will work to capture the audience that made Roseanne Barr's new TV series an overnight hit. And then... some say the legalized marijuana business in Oregon is a failure... and that should be a lesson for California.
Wednesday, May 30th
KNX Indepth (May 30, 2018)
Roseanne Barr says the Ambien made her do it... made her tweet her racist remarks that led to widespread condemnation and the cancellation by ABC of her top rated TV show. We speak with a forensic psychiatrist about the so-called Ambien defense. Also on today's show... a disturbing trend in younger people getting colon cancer has led to a new recommendation for people to start screening at age 45. We go In-Depth on the effort to market man-made, lower-priced diamonds... we discuss why some churches are trying to avoid calling the police... and we find out more about laws that allow people who are terminally ill to use drugs that aren't yet approved by the FDA.
Tuesday, May 29th
KNX Indepth (May 29, 2018)
The bigger they are....the harder they fall... and tweeting racist comments certainly doesn't help. ABC has yanked Roseanne -- an enormous hit for the network, at a time when network television needs all the viewers it can get -- after its star, Roseanne Barr, tweeted offensive and racist comments aimed at a former advisor to President Obama. Roseanne did apologize, but the president of ABC Entertainment called the remarks abhorrent, repugnant and inconsistent with our values... and canceled the very popular show. This happened on the same day that Starbucks closed thousands of stores for a few hours to give employees racial bias education. Also on the show, the mother of the only American adult on board the ill-fated Malaysia airliner that went missing four years ago, as the search for the plane ends without finding it. And 50 years after Robert Kennedy was assassinated in Los Angeles, there's growing talk about how Sirhan Sirhan could not have acted alone or fired the fatal shots.

KNX Indepth (May 25, 2018)
In an unusual move, the FBI is warning Americans to reboot routers and install new software patches on their home computers. A group linked to Russia's military intelligence service may be behind a malware attack that's aimed at individuals. We'll try to figure out who's winning the 'summit game' ... the president of the United States or the dictator of North Korea. We ask an expert if disgraced movie mogul Harvey Weinstein, who's been charged with sex crimes, can get a fair trial. Then later, we are joined in studio by long time political analyst Bill Schneider, whose new book tries to answer the question: how America became ungovernable.
Thursday, May 24th
KNX Indepth (May 24, 2018)
Disgraced media mogul Harvey Weinstein is expected to surrender tomorrow in New York, where he reportedly will be charged with a sex crime. We will go In-Depth on that! Also... President Trump announced today that the U.S. summit with North Korea is OFF. We'll find out why, and who has the president's ear in the White House. Later... as L-A teachers demand more money, an expert explains how teacher pay here in California stacks up against the rest of the country. And we'll talk with the reporter who broke the story about members of the Air Force -- the guys who are in charge of nuclear missiles -- using LSD.
Wednesday, May 23rd
KNX InDepth (May 23, 2018)
It is feared on the streets and it is feared in LA County's prison system where it seems to maintain a dark and evil control. We're talking about the Mexican mafia. Drugs. Yes. Extortion rackets. Yes. Today, a major FBI investigation leads to dozens of arrests so we will go In Depth. Then, USC at the crossroads. A major scandal involving students who say they were sexually abused by USC's former resident gynecologist..and it is shaking the university to its very core. Later, The NFL to its players---if you are going to do it---do it IN the locker room. Kneeling during the national anthem. And, President Trump is calling it Spygate...he says a major conspiracy to plant a spy in his presidential campaign. His opponents say nonsense. But, could the President be right? We will go In Depth
Tuesday, May 22nd
KNX Indepth (May 22, 2018)
Is President Trump backing away from what would be a historic summit meeting with North Korea's leader? The president says the meeting slated for next month may not happen. Also today... word that the so-called Congressional Gang of Eight will be getting a look at special counsel Robert Mueller's secret sources for the Russia probe. We'll be talking about the big difference in how Texas has responded to its school shooting compared to Florida and the students there. And later... an effort to stop driverless cars... and for surfers, the first big south swell of the season is coming.
Monday, May 21st
KNX Indepth (May 21, 2018)
Did he cross a line? President Trump has taken to Twitter to DEMAND that the Justice Department investigate the FBI and itself. He says he wants to know if the DOJ had an informant inside his presidential campaign. Later... his dad was the famed Billy Graham. Now the Reverend Franklin Graham is taking his Decision America tour to the Rose Bowl. He says there is something wrong with America that badly needs fixing. Also on today's show... a man fired by the New York Mets for laughing at an off-color joke... in private. And... is the alien-looking octopus... an alien?
Friday, May 18th
KNX Indepth (May 18, 2018)
Many women are horrified and frightened, while many conservative groups are cheering. This split screen of emotion is due to what amounts to a crackdown on abortion by the Trump administration. Also on today's show... what they're saying inside the White House about the Mueller investigtion. We'll discuss whether those of us in the media are culpable when there is a school shooting as there was in Texas today. Then... the latest on the Hawaiian volcano eruption... and we'll go to the U.K. for a preview of tomorrow's royal wedding.
Thursday, May 17th
KNX Indepth (May 17, 2018)
We are now one year into Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into possible ties between Russia and the Trump campaign... an investigation that includes possible obstruction of justice by the President of the United States. Our guest in studio today is John Dean, whose name will forever be linked to Watergate. He was White House counsel to Richard Nixon and played a vital role in bringing about the end of the Nixon presidency. We talk with him about the similarities and differences between Watergate and whatever future historians will eventually call the age of Trump in which we are now living.
Wednesday, May 16th
KNX Indepth (May 16, 2018)
Was the U-S blind-sided by threats from North Korea to cancel the summit meeting that's scheduled next month in Singapore? We talk with an expert about what's going on. Also today... the transcripts are out... 1,800 pages... but what do they really tell us about that meeting in Trump Tower with a Russian lawyer during the presidential campaign? Later... the latest on the upcoming royal wedding. And then... California's right-to-die law. We talk with a man who wants options to end his life, and with his doctor, about how California's law is supposed to work.
Tuesday, May 15th
KNX Indepth (May 15, 2018)
There is trouble brewing between North and South Korea that could derail next month's summit between the North Korean dictator and President Trump. Also today... the border between Israel and Gaza remains tense and violence-prone the day after the U.S. opened its new embassy in Jerusalem. We'll go to London where excitement is building in anticipation of Saturday's royal wedding... but will the bride's father attend or not? And we go In-Depth to remember Tom Wolfe, a pioneer of what came to be called 'new journalism.'
Monday, May 14th
KNX Indepth (May 14, 2018)
There was a big celebration in Jerusalem today as the U-S opened its embassy in that city... after moving it from Tel Aviv. But the controversial move has led to violence between Palestinians in Gaza and Israeli troops. Does the embassy move make America safer... or is Israel being rewarded for what some say is a military occupation? We speak with both sides. Later... we'll find out what happens next, now that the Supreme Court has ruled that states can authorize sports betting. There's a lot of money involved... should there be regulations? Taxes?
Friday, May 11th
KNX InDepth (May 11, 2018)
The Middle East is usually a volatile place, but next week could reach new and dangerous levels of tension--just as the U.S. Embassy in Israel is officially moving to Jerusalem, Israel's national birthday is prompting major Palestinian protests. We will go in depth on what could be a long week for Israel, for Palestinians and for the entire region. Then, times are good for California and thanks to tax revenues rolling in, we have at least 8-billion-extra-dollars to play with in the state budget. So what would you do, save or spend; and spend on what? We go In Depth.... Later, President Trump outlines his plan to bring down the price of prescription drugs, but did he break another campaign promise? We'll go In Depth on that. We'll take you to the big island of Hawaii where the Kilauea volcano may soon spit out refrigerator sized molten boulders. And , KROQ's Weenie Roast helps kick off summer this weekend. We'll spend some time with Cat Corbett .
Thursday, May 10th
KNX InDepth (May 10, 2018)
This is a tale of two nations. North Korea and Iran. Each with a history of wanting to join the nuclear weapons club....North Korea having now accomplished that. North Korea and Iran. Each having supported international terrorism, cyber warfare and the seizing of hostages. North Korean and Iran...each keeping political prisoners.
So, why is President Trump getting all warm and fuzzy about North Korea while throwing a diplomatic bucket of ice on Iran? We will go In Depth. Also, that meeting is now set. That meeting between President Trump and the North Korean dictator. So, how's THAT going work out? Later, is the force going to be with the Han Solo movie debuting tonight? Will Star Wars fans flock to the movie or remain in a galaxy far, far away? We'll go In Depth on that. And, waiting at the DMV is getting longer for many. All because of a new license being issued. Is it time to privatize the DMV?
Wednesday, May 9th
KNX InDepth (May 9, 2018)
Questions. There are many questions being thrown at Gina Haspel , the career CIA officer who may become the first woman to run the spy agency. But the questions are about her past overseeing a secretive prison in Thailand where CIA personnel tortured al Qaeda suspects. She then took part in the destruction of video records of these sessions. At her confirmation hearing today, she said she will never allow a torture program to return to the the CIA. But still---there are questions. And so, we will go In Depth to try and get some answers. Then, just 24 hours after President Trump withdrew the U.S. from the Iran nuclear deal, Saudi Arabia says it'll build a bomb if Iran starts to develop one--are we on the cusp of a new nuclear arms race in the Middle East? Later.....teenagers are spraying themselves with aerosol deodorant until it gives them heinous burns--why exactly are they doing that? We'll go In Depth. Then, new legal problems for President Trump's personal lawyer, and maybe the president himself; and California may soon be the first state to mandate solar panels on newly built homes.
Tuesday, May 8th
KNX InDepth (May 8, 2018)
Thumbing his nose at Great Britain, France and Germany; taking an ax to Barack Obama's signature foreign policy accomplishment; and casting doubt on America's word to the world, President Trump announced plans to pull out of the Iran nuclear deal by reinstating severe sanctions against the Iranian regime. Mr Trump called the deal--one his key campaign issues--horrible, one-sided and disastrous. And so, we will go In Depth on what it means to the United States, to peace in the middle east and to YOU! And in the Middle East, Israel may feel immediate repercussions as a result of the president's actions. What will happen there next? We will go In Depth. From Jerusalem we head to Tehran to get Iranian reaction to the American withdrawal from the deal. And President Obama breaks a long unwritten rule of ex-presidents.

"I am NOT a member of the LAPD, I AM the LAPD--It is in my DNA." Those are the words of Chief Charlie Beck who--after four decades of service to the city--is set to retire next month. When Beck says the LAPD is in his blood, he is NOT kidding. Just about everyone in his family is or was LAPD. And so, for the next hour, we will go In-Depth with LAPD Chief Charlie Beck Over his forty year span with the department, Chief Beck has seen the highs and the lows and has come through them all. The 3rd largest police department in the US, the chief commands some 10 thousand sworn officers and three thousand civilian employees. Curbing gang violence and the containment of terrorism among the many missions of the department. It is not, though, a department without scandal. We will go In-Depth with Chief Beck on that, too.

What is going on here... is there a plan? Or is the White House just winging it? First, newly hired presidential adviser Rudy Giuliani went on TV to say that the president DID know about the payment to porn actress Stormy Daniels. But then, the president said hat Rudy "will get his facts straight." And now... Giuliani is walking back his comments. We'll focus on the political and legal repercussions. Later... we'll do the math and figure out what the latest unemployment numbers really mean for you! And then... we talk with a reporter who is up close and personal to the erupting volcano in Hawaii.

Sounds like one of those movies you may or may not decide to see -- War of the Scouts -- only this one is playing out not on the big screen, but across America. The Boy Scouts are inviting girls to join, and dropping the name 'Boy' from one of their programs. The Girl Scouts say this is unfair and suggest they are being raided for members.

But she reminds us, in her new book, that Los Angeles wouldn't even exist if not for earthquakes. We go In-Depth with noted seismologist Dr. Lucy Jones. Also... John Dean, who served as White House counsel for President Nixon. We'll ask him who he thinks leaked those questions Robert Mueller wants to ask President Trump, and why?
