Emily Harrold and Laurel Leff join “Say Anything!” host Joy Behar to discuss why stories about the Holocaust were largely absent from the front page of The New York Times during World War II. Harrold directed the documentary short, “Reporting on The Times: The New York Times and The Holocaust,” while she was a student at New York University.

Legendary talk show host Dick Cavett joins John Fugelsang on “Viewpoint” to consider a recent Public Policy poll that found “Democrats trust everything except Fox, and Republicans don’t trust anything other than Fox.”

“They have, I think, one too many blondes whose hair looks breakable,” Cavett says of Fox News.
