In hour one of Here & Now's March 13, 2018 full broadcast, we break down news of Rex Tillerson's firing as secretary of state by President Trump on Tuesday with former Rep. Jane Harman, director, president and CEO of the Wilson Center. Also, despite people's best intentions, inherent biases — based on stereotypes and ideas about things like race and sex — still exist. A professor of psychology at the University of Wisconsin Madison explains where these biases come from. And global health care efforts rely heavily on U.S. funding, but U.S. attitudes toward spending in this area are increasingly hostile. We speak with one specialist about the potential impact of isolationist policies and trends. You can read and hear more at, follow us on Twitter and join the conversation on Facebook and Tumblr.
