1588 - Steven A. Cook: False Dawn in the Middle East & Avi Asher-Schapiro: Ubers Big Sexual Harrassment Problem
Steven A. Cook (@StevenACook) on his book "False Dawn: Protest, Democracy, and Violence in the New Middle East." Why celebrations of Turkish democracy turned out to be premature. Why the enthusiasm for Libya was equally misplaced.
Then, Avi Asher-Schapiro (@AASchapiro) on his Intercept piece, "As Uber Probes Sexual Harassment At Its Offices, It Overlooks Hundreds Of Thousands Of Female Drivers."
On the fun half - Franken suggests Flynn not the only one who's been secretive about meeting with members of the Russian government, Iowa Rep Rod Blum hates his life as a congressman, and your calls and IMs!
