In hour two of Here & Now's June 15, 2017 full broadcast, the investigation continues into the shooting Wednesday morning at a baseball practice for Republican members of Congress in Alexandria, Virginia. We get an update from NPR's Greg Myre. Also, scholar A. David Lewis' new book explores the history of Muslim characters in the comic book genre. Lewis joins us to discuss some of that history, and explain why comic books and Islam "actually go pretty well together." And author Jonathan Taplin argues that internet companies like Facebook, Google and Amazon grew so quickly that they took over American culture and broke its democracy.
