The Lead with Jake Tapper
CNN's lead DC anchor and chief Washington correspondent, Jake Tapper, hosts this two-hour long weekday afternoon program, with headlines from around the country and the world, the top stories in national and international news, politics, health, money, the environment, sports and popular culture. The Lead also concentrates on bringing stories that aren't found on front pages —buried leads— to the forefront.
Records highs for housing and gas as Wall Street continues to dive into historic territory with economists warning of a possible recession. Plus, the U.S. secures its first batch of baby formula from Europe, but it’s not just parents who are desperate to get their hands on shipments. Then, Trevor Reed sits down with Jake to discuss his near three year detainment in Russia.
