2014: The year in review


Guests: Dick Polman and Trudy Rubin

The rise of the self-proclaimed Islamic state, Ebola, turmoil in Ukraine, bloodshed in the West Bank and Israel, and renewed relations with Cuba were just a few of the foreign policy challenges facing the U.S. At home, police shootings and protests, Obamacare, gay marriage, mid-term elections, immigration reform, and scandal at the VA were among the top stories that shaped the political landscape. As the end of 2014 approaches we’ll look back at the stories that made headlines with veteran journalists DICK POLMAN and TRUDY RUBIN. Polman, who has covered national politics since 1988, is a columnist for Newsworks.org. Rubin writes the Worldview column for the Philadelphia Inquirer.
