Steve Harvey Campaigns for More
Dr. Phil taps into the huge reservoir of strength and talent that is Steve Harvey. Twenty-seven years doing something is impressive. Being successful at something for twenty-seven years is even more impressive. Being one of the best at something for twenty-seven years is absolutely incredible. Being the best at something that is extremely difficult. Steve Harvey is one of the best stand-up comics ever. For most people that would be everything. For Steve Harvey that’s getting out of bed in the morning. You also know him as an award-winning radio host, an award-winning television host, a successful actor, a producer, a respected and cherished leader in his community, a man who does not shy away from controversy, a devout Christian, husband and father and the man to turn to when in need of a little dating advice. Someone who makes success look so easy is truly accomplished, but like every successful person he has had to work hard to overcome some truly frightening obstacles. Steve Harvey has a life-time of amazing accomplishments and yet it feels like he’s only just begun.

Paul Manafort and the Problem of White-Collar Crime
Former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort will spend around seven years in federal prison — far less than the nineteen to twenty-four years recommended by Special Counsel Robert Mueller. The sentences prompted a backlash when a federal judge in Virginia said Manafort deserved leniency for his “otherwise blameless life.”But it’s not just the punishment that has people talking. Manafort’s crimes only came to light after the unlikely events that led to the Mueller investigation. Manafort’s own lawyer said as much this week: “but for” the 2016 election, his client wouldn’t have been in court. The episode has renewed questions that have been asked — if not answered — since the the 2008 financial crisis: Why are white-collar criminals so rarely prosecuted? And when they are, why do they seem to get off with lighter punishment?Alex Wagner puts those questions to attorney and former federal prosecutor Ken White. White is the person behind @popehat on Twitter and the author of the recent Atlantic article: “6 Reasons Paul Manafort Got Off So Lightly.”Learn more about your ad choices.
