Brexit: David Davis says the EU must compromise too

Media playback is unsupported on your device David Davis has said the EU must be willing to give ground too if further progress in Brexit talks is to be made.

Quest: Human trafficking must be stopped

Human trafficking is a $ 100 billion business Quest’s Profitable Moment I recently heard of an industry that makes more than $ 100 billion in profits. It has a seemingly never-ending source of raw materials and insatiable demand from some consumers. It sounds like the perfect investment — until I tell you it’s the business of human trafficking. CNN is committed to helping end modern day slavery through our Freedom Project. I was in Rome chairing a discussion on ways this can be brought about when I heard of a ...

Labour: Priti Patel must face probe or quit over Israeli trip

Priti Patel must be investigated for holding unofficial meetings during a holiday in Israel or “do the decent thing and resign”, Labour has said. The international development secretary apologised on Tuesday for holding 12 meetings, including one with Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu, on a private trip.

Ms Patel was not in the Commons to face ...

If Lions want to be playoff team, win at Lambeau is close to a must

7:12 PM ET ALLEN PARK, Mich. — They’ve sat in their locker room the past three Sundays now, mostly silent, highly annoyed. The results were all the same: loss, loss, loss for the Detroit Lions — an increasingly familiar theme throughout October. They haven’t been bad losses — at least not in the way teams would categorize bad losses to inferior opponents. No, the four losses the Lions have this season — including the three straight they closed October with — have all come against teams that might be in ...

Richard Cordray: Trump must veto bill that will hurt consumers

Consumer watchdog chief wants more scrutiny for Equifax No one can say Richard Cordray didn’t try. On Monday, the head of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau made a last-ditch plea to President Trump to preserve a rule that makes it easier for Americans to band together to sue banks and credit card companies. The Senate voted to repeal the rule last week, and the measure now awaits Trump’s signature. “This letter is not about charts or graphs or studies. Instead, it is simply a personal appeal to you, asking you ...

Theresa May is to challenge society over differences in how public services treat people of different races.

The public presentation of data brought together from across Whitehall follows on from Mrs ...

When should CEOs get involved in public policy Quest’s Profitable Moment What’s the role of today’s CEO — besides running their own company? Barely a week goes by without a CEO taking a stand on the controversial issue de jour; the latest being the row over American football players protesting by kneeling during the national anthem, and President Trump calling them “sons of bitches” who should be fired. Satya Nadella has been the CEO of Microsoft for three years. When he got the job, he was surprised at the range of non-tech ...

For Kevin Durant, troll season must end now

11:52 PM ET OAKLAND – This summer should have been a victory lap for Kevin Durant after his sublime NBA Finals. Validation after proving himself on the biggest stage in basketball.

His brother Tony Durant went even further, “I’ve never seen him this happy, ever.” That should have ...

Brian Stelter: Why newsrooms must keep fact-checking Trump

Stelter: Media must keep fact-checking Trump I didn’t think we’d have time for this segment on Sunday’s “Reliable Sources.” We already had more than an hour’s worth of media stories to cover. So I didn’t think we’d have time to cover President Trump’s latest errors and exaggerations. But in our show meeting on Saturday, we decided we would make the time. And that was the point of this segment — journalists must keep making time to point out Trump’s fact-free assertions. Why? Because the Trump White House’s credibility crisis affects ...
