Latinos say institutional discrimination, including discrimination while trying to vote or participate in politics, is a problem in America today. However, when asked, many Latinos reported feeling better about their local government.

That's according to a new survey out this week from NPR, the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health.

WAMC's Dr. Alan Chartock discusses the first indictments in special prosecutor Robert Mueller's probe into Russian collusion.

Like the United States, Germany is grappling with fake news and hate speech and what to do about it. For decades, it has banned incitement, defamation, and phrases and symbols from the Nazi era.

But the lines have been a lot murkier when the offenses in question are on the Internet.

Chancellor Angela Merkel's governing coalition tried to address the discrepancy this year with a controversial "Network Enforcement Law," which the German parliament passed on June 30, and which quietly went into effect on Oct. 1.

Ezekiel Elliott could be out of the Dallas Cowboys' lineup until mid-December.

A federal judge has cleared the way for the NFL to enforce a six-game suspension it handed to the Cowboys running back over domestic violence allegations.

U.S. District Judge Katherine Polk Failla denied the request for a preliminary injunction from players' union attorneys working for Elliott. Failla has put the ruling on hold for 24 hours to give Elliott's legal team time to appeal, a likely move. She heard arguments from both sides on Monday in federal court in Manhattan with Elliott in attendance before rendering her decision hours later.
