CNN Special Report Air Dates

S2021E21 - White Power on Trial: Return to Charlottesville Air Date: 06 December 2021 02:00 -

Sorry, but right now we don't have any sources for this episode.

CNN correspondent Elle Reeve returns to the scene of the deadly and violent "Unite the Right" white supremacist rally where – four years later – a hallmark federal civil suit, Sines v. Kessler, went to court. The documentary retraces the events in Charlottesville that led nine plaintiffs to sue 25 defendants, including high-profile white nationalists, neo-Nazis, and organizations designated as hate groups, who they say planned, carried out, and celebrated a weekend of violence and intimidation. Reeve – whose reporting on the "Unite the Right" rally in the documentary Charlottesville: Race and Terror with Vice News Tonight won numerous awards – has unprecedented access to the major players in the case, including some of the white supremacists on trial.

During the hour, Reeve speaks to the attorneys representing the plaintiffs in Sines v. Kessler and the plaintiffs themselves who were harmed by the "Unite the Right" rally about its lingering impact and what's next for their community. She also talks to defendants Richard Spencer, Matthew Heimbach, Jeff Schoep, and Matt Parrott about their roles that weekend, the current state and downfall of the alt-right, and the future of white supremacy.

In August 2017, white nationalists descended upon Charlottesville in a planned demonstration against the removal of the statue of Robert E. Lee, but soon it was engulfed in violence prompting the Virginia governor to declare a state of emergency. Less than two hours after that declaration, a white nationalist plowed his car into a crowd of protestors injuring dozens and killing 32-year-old Heather Heyer. Infamously, President Trump addressed the nation, condemning hate and violence on "many sides."

S2021E22 - Weed 6: Marijuana and Autism Air Date: 20 December 2021 01:00 -

Sorry, but right now we don't have any sources for this episode.

Nearly ten years ago, CNN chief medical correspondent Dr. Sanjay Gupta set out on a journey and traveled the globe to investigate the medical benefits of medical marijuana.  Weed, the original award-winning documentary in the series that premiered in 2015, highlighted the remarkable benefits of CBD in treating seizure disorders in kids. The documentary led to dozens of state legislatures changing laws granting parents and doctors the ability to use CBD in treating children.

In Weed 6: Marijuana and Autism, Dr. Gupta takes viewers on a similar journey. Medical marijuana is known to treat dozens of disorders. In this documentary, Gupta follows several families who have seen the miraculous benefits of the plant on their children struggling with autism.

Autism, ASD for Autism Spectrum Disorder, is by definition a wide array of behaviors. Whether mild or severe, two core symptoms are social communication challenges and restrictive or repetitive behaviors. Viewers will meet researchers, doctors, and families, some of whom are coming out publicly for the first time, and will see in real-time how life-changing the plant can be for them.
