From Tom’s Reading List

FiveThirtyEight: Why Obama Might Be Trump’s Biggest Challenge -- "Obama came up a lot more when people like Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio were in the race. Those guys were talking a whole lot more about how they thought that Obama was trying to adversely change American society. Trump talks just a ton about Clinton and honestly not that much about Obama these days."

PBS NewsHour: Her turn now: Hillary Clinton makes her case for presidency -- "The first woman to lead a major U.S. political party toward the White House, Clinton will be greeted by a crowd of cheering delegates eager to see history made in the November election. But her real audience will be millions of voters who may welcome her experience but question her character."

Baltimore Sun: Charges dropped, Freddie Gray case concludes with zero convictions against officers — "Prosecutors dropped all charges Wednesday against three Baltimore police officers accused in the arrest and death of Freddie Gray, bringing to an end one of the highest-profile criminal cases in the city's history with zero convictions."

This program aired on July 29, 2016.
