Fareed Zakaria's WHY THEY HATE US encores TONIGHT at 9p ET on CNN/U.S. & CNN International

Fareed Zakaria's WHY THEY HATE US encores TONIGHT at 9p ET on CNN/U.S. & CNN International

CNN's Fareed Zakaria hosts a special, updated presentation of WHY THEY HATE US tonight on CNN/U.S. and CNN International at 9:00pm Eastern.

“Why do they hate us?” has been the question asked since the 9/11 attacks 15 years ago – and again in the wake of horrific attack on the Pulse nightclub in Orlando, Florida last week.  What makes seemingly ordinary people turn against America - and against their own countrymen - to commit murderous attacks?  Zakaria explores the roots of the rage – and challenges experts, religious scholars, policy influencers, and even those who say they want to kill us – for answers to whether America can do anything to stop the bloodshed.

Zakaria also explores why modernity is perceived by violent jihadis as a threat to Islam to be met with bloodshed – including violence against other Muslims – in a new editorial, "Why they hate us."

CNNMoney Investigation: Runway Injustice

From horrifying scams that prey on desperate young men and women to labor practices that leave workers deeply in debt, CNNMoney’s latest investigation from Blake Ellis and Melanie Hicken exposes the dark side of the modeling industry through the eyes of the models themselves.

Stolen pay. Sexual harassment. Months without a paycheck. Outrageous fees and expenses that eat away at earnings. And no one to turn to for help.

Models allege that labor abuses like these run rampant in the modeling industry - leaving many workers feeling more like indentured servants than the glamorous high fashion icons young girls around the world dream of becoming.

While the industry often comes under fire for eating disorders, drug and alcohol abuse and unwanted sexual advances, its problems go far beyond that.

From an analysis of pay stubs and financial statements, interviews with dozens of current and former models, attorneys, labor experts and even a former agency executive, a CNNMoney investigation has found that the fashion world often treats its models in ways that would be unheard of in many other industries. And due to a significant lack of regulation, these abuses can be completely legal.

The deeply researched investigation reveals a dark side of the modeling industry that exploits young and vulnerable workers. From the outrageous cost of being a model, 'model apartments,' delayed or withheld pay, lack of privacy to rape, drugs and porn – this report is not one to be missed.
