This week, Soledad O’Brien looks ahead to the 2018 midterm elections with former Maryland Governor and 2016 presidential contender Martin O’Malley, who has been stumping for democrats in 18 states, hoping to flip statehouses and local elections. He tells Soleadad what he has been hearing from candidates, his take on how most of America has shifted since the Presidential election, and why the national parties are still holding on. Then, Renee DiResta, a Silicon V Alley tech entrepreneur, helped prepare members of Congress for the Intelligence hearing with social media giants Facebook, Twitter and Google over Russian influence on their platforms during the election. She explains to Soledad how hijacked accounts are automating the distribution of fake news, and how bad actors all over the globe are creating real world events that bring protest movements together in volatile settings. And, a march for Puerto Rico in the nation’s capital as the U.S. territory continues to struggle. Evelyn Mejil, organizer of the Unity March for Puerto Rico, sits down with Soledad to talk about how she says the hurricane turned Puerto Rico into a third world country, and why those who’ve fled the island are creating a dangerous brain drain that could have a dramatic impact on the future.
