"I'm always amazed at how much time and effort and money people invest in evil," Mideast correspondent Julie Stahl said of her recent experience exploring a terror tunnel built by Hezbollah.

"When you talk to these mothers it's not the monster that you see on television...most of the time they are people who didn't get the life lessons that God allowed me to have. I had one mother who told me that she was never told that she was fearfully and wonderfully made until she was in prison," Amber Strong said on today's CBN News Daily Rundown. 

The number of women going to prison is rising. If those women are mothers, they lose the opportunity to see their children grow up, connect with them and make positive memories. 

The GEM program is working to heal those relationships.

The press is called the Fourth Estate. That term refers to the power of the press to frame political issues.

Chief political analyst David Brody recently spoke with Levin about his new book, "Unfreedom of the Press." David is on today's CBN News Daily Rundown. 


"If you do anything to make it easier for these people you are encouraging more people to make that trek and you're actually putting more people at risk," CBN contributor Chuck Holton said of the moral dilemma faced by border patrol and aid groups as they figure out what to do with migrants headed towards the US/Mexico border. On today's CBN News Daily Rundown, Holton talks about the route migrants are taking to get to Mexico and the challenge it's been for the countries along the way.


It may be one of the most heard prayers in all of history, FDR's D-Day prayer. Listen to it on today's CBN News Daily Rundown and hear from reporter Paul Strand who's been covering efforts to have a plaque with that prayer placed on the WWII memorial in Washington, D.C.


Virginia Beach City employees returned to work Tuesday, less than 72 hours after the shooting that took the lives of 12 of their co-workers. Prayer gatherings remain a constant sight at the Municipal Center as people visit the makeshift memorial set up to remember the victims. Videographer Jason Gill was at the memorial Tuesday afternoon getting footage for CBN. For him, this assignment was personal. 


How did a celebrity businessman with no political or military experience end up as president of the United States?

Over the weekend the CBN News team covered a mass shooting that happened in our own backyard. A gunman opened fire in one of the Virginia Beach municipal buildings Friday afternoon, killing 12 people. Reporter Heather Sells spent the weekend covering the community response and she says that it's not the evil she'll remember, but the overwhelming kindness she's seen as people care for the survivors of the shooting and for the friends and families of the victims.
