On Todays Show

On GPS at 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. ET on CNN:

First, Fareed gives his Take on the first few months of the Trump administration – and why the media is more important than ever.
“The media should cover the administration’s policies fairly. But they must also never let the public forget that many of the attitudes and actions of this president are gross violations of the customs and practices of the modern American system — that they are aberrations and cannot become the new norms.”

Then, a live panel discusses the firing of James Comey. What happens next? Are comparisons with Watergate fair? Joining Fareed to discuss this and more will be former CIA Director Gen. Michael Hayden, former CIA Director James Woolsey, CNN presidential historian and former director of the Richard Nixon Presidential Library Tim Naftali, and Cristina Rodríguez, professor of law at Yale Law School.

Plus, violent unrest has rocked Venezuela for weeks, as protesters call for the release of political prisoners and a solution to massive food and medical shortages. How did the country get to this point? Fareed is joined by Shannon O’Neil, a senior fellow for Latin American studies at the Council on Foreign Relations, and Moisés Naím, a former trade minister in Venezuela and the author of “The End of Power.”

Finally, on Mother’s Day, a look at the Biblical first mother: Eve. Fareed is joined by Bruce Feiler, author of “The First Love Story: Adam, Eve, and Us.”
