The 2016 Presidential Election is already proving to be a polarizing political race which has divided Americans across the nation. But which Americans have the power? A new election special of America By The Numbers titled "The New Deciders" will examine voters who will have a large portion of the power and influence that will determine our next president. Maria Hinojosa discusses the documentary with us before it airs tonight at 10 p.m. on Thirteen. Soledad O'Brien's "Matter of Fact": One woman is looking to change the way the public sees Sunday morning political talk shows. Multi-award winning journalist Soledad O'Brien is the familiar face that will be anchoring Matter of Fact with Soledad O'Brien, a relaunch of Hearst's one season-old Sunday political magazine show. The show premieres this coming weekend, and O'Brien is with us tonight to discuss how she plans to go beyond the norm in political television and expand the conversation. 15 Years After 9/11: Are We Safer? : Boston, Paris, San Bernardino, Brussels, Orlando, and Nice: These are just a handful of cities that witnessed horrible acts of terror in recent years. This month will mark 15 years since the devastating terrorist attack in New York City on September 11, 2001. And as hard as it might be to admit, this year will be the first year that children in schools will learn about the attack as an event in history instead of a day they will never forget. Does terror look the same today as it did on the morning of 9/11? Producer, director, and correspondent Miles O'Brien will join us to discuss his new PBS NOVA special, 15 Years of Terror and how terror has evolved since 2001.
