American voters aren't happy about the GOP's tax plan
A week ago, the bill had average ratings of 32 percent approval and 46 percent disapproval in polls from five organizations. By two to one - 52 percent to 25 percent - Americans say they feel embarrassed rather than proud that Trump is president.

PBS is turning to longtime CNN global correspondent Christiane Amanpour to fill the void left by Charlie Rose's sudden dismissal.

On Nov. 21, a day after The Washington Post reported that eight women have accused Charlie Rose of sexually harassing them, PBS formally cut ties with the famed interviewer and cancelled distribution of his nightly show. The show will carry PBS branding and will be called Amanpour on PBS.

Amanpour has earned eleven News and Documentary Emmy Awards, four Peabody Awards, two George Polk Awards, three duPont-Columbia Awards and the Courage in Journalism Award. PBS' move came on the heels of CBS News' announcement that it had pulled Rose from CBS This Morning and 60 Minutes.
