President Barack Obama called for civil engagement and asked Americans to talk to each other “in real life,” rather than on the internet, in his farewell address this week. Meanwhile at President-Elect Donald Trump’s first news conference in his new role, he pointed to American economic gains since his election, and slammed media outlets for churning out “fake news.”

Host Frank Stasio talks with Time Warner Cable News Washington Reporter Geoff Bennett, WUNC Capitol Bureau Chief Jeff Tiberii, and Political Junkie Ken Rudin about the latest political news from Washington and North Carolina.

Laura Pellicer is a digital reporter with WUNC’s small but intrepid digital news team.
