CNN Exclusive: Plastic Island

CNN presents Plastic Island, an exclusive digital documentary exploring the damage plastic is doing to our oceans – and potentially to our health.

CNN got exclusive access to Midway Atoll in the north Pacific Ocean, where the plastic we throw away each day washes up on the beach, works its way into the ocean and potentially ends up in our food. This Pacific island is on the frontline of the world's fight against discarded plastic and its damage to the environment.

From the frontline, CNN’s Nick Paton Walsh, Ingrid Formanek, Jackson Loo and Mark Phillips take a closer look at the toll our disposable culture is taking on the wildlife there – and the health implications for the rest of the world.

This exclusive includes a mini-documentary, a personal essay from CNN correspondent Nick Paton Walsh, an animated video explaining microplastics and graphics illustrating the amount of plastic in the ocean and the life cycle of a toothbrush.

You called, CNN listened: What voicemails reveal about the American voter

What 10,000+ voicemails reveal about the American voter

Devastated. Ecstatic. Afraid. Hopeful.

We asked American voters how they are feeling about the outcome of the election and their new president-elect. You left us more than 1,500 voicemails in four days. We listened.

Here's what you said.

In a project based off the successful Love Story initiative, CNN opened up a voicemail box to hear straight from the American people.

We heard from an Obama turned Trump voter, a registered Republican who voted for Clinton, a Trump voter who feels uneasy about their vote and many, many more.

Explore voicemails verified by CNN Digital, and call in yourself to tell us how you feel. The voicemail box will be open through Inauguration 2017 and we're still listening.

CNN Politics Presents: "Girls on the Bus"

During the 1972 election, Timothy Crouse penned “The Boys on the Bus” – a book that introduced us to the gritty (mostly male) journalists on the campaign trail.  Over four decades later, the daily grind of election may be the same, but the faces have certainly changed.  

Hear from CNN’s top political team Dana Bash, Gloria Borger, Ashley Killough, Sara Murray, Maeve Reston, S.E. Cupp and more as they explore their experiences — both at work and home — covering the 2016 election.

Can a honest politician succeed in this election? Lying in politics is nothing new, and there's a science behind it.

CNNMoney uncovers how voters judge a candidate’s truthfulness – and if that even matters at the ballot box, taking a closer look at how politicians lie and how their speech patterns give them away in a new video series – The Science of Political Deception.

The five-part CNN Digital video series features scientists and deception experts discussing what happens in the brain as a lie is being created, what makes the voting public believe a candidate is trustworthy, and how this election fits into a vast history of Oval Office deception.

The full series is available at CNNMoney.com/lies.
