What the white supremacist view of history leaves out

By Jane Greenway Carr, CNN
Marchers in Charlottesville said they wanted to "defend history" by protesting efforts to take down Confederate monuments. How can people who claim to love history get its meaning so very, very wrong? writes Jane Greenway Carr.

Trump is the boy in the bubble

Michael D'Antonio, CNN

Bannon's out. So what?

By Julian Zelizer, CNN Political Analyst

Bannon's stunningly irresponsible words

By Errol Louis, CNN Political Commentator
