Connecticut has put in place diversity quotas for certain magnet schools, meaning the racial breakdown of those schools has to stay relatively fixed. That policy is backfiring on the state, which is now being sued by parents—largely African-American—saying that it adversely affects their kids. I recently sat down with Gwen Samuel, the plaintiff in that case, and today we’ll share that exclusive interview. Plus: CNN’s Jim Acosta says the media is doing a great job and there’s no bias. Rachel and I will discuss.

We also cover the following stories:
-President Trump sparks a furor with his election interference remarks.
-U.S. blames Iran for suspected attack on civilian oil tankers.
-Federal budget deficit grows 39% in first eight months of the year.
