TV show description:
A primetime, summer news magazine series, the CBSN: On Assignment TV show features reports from new perspectives on stories from around the globe. The series is also available on CBSN, the Tiffany network’s streaming news platform. Viewers can also stream it on the CBS News website, as well as the network’s paid subscription streaming service, CBS All Access.
Each episode features multiple reports. Topics include grassroots movements to end inner-city gun violence, political corruption, and new terrorist threats.
In the series premiere, reports include a dispatch from Mosul, Iraq, about how ISIS has indoctrinated a whole new generation of children. The segment includes interviews with a worried mother, as well as aid workers in dire need of assistance.
Reporting from Japan, the series explores the culture’s unique response to a declining population, as well as how the issue is affecting everyday life. Some people are now using eerily realistic robots as friends and roommates. Meanwhile, schools are closing, because there are not enough students to justify keeping them open.
From Europe comes a report regarding how foreign contractors are committing visa fraud to expand automobile factories in the USA.
CBS says, “Each hour-long edition of the series will feature multiple stories and highlight CBSN’s distinctive storytelling style, as reported by more than a dozen CBS News correspondents.”
