On Today's Show

On GPS at 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. ET on CNN:

First, Fareed gives his Take on concerns about the hollowing out of democracy in the advanced, industrial world – and how the picture is more complicated than it might seem.
 
"When we think about this problem, inevitably, rightly, we worry about Donald Trump – his attacks on judges, the free press and his own Justice Department. But there is also a worrying erosion of a core democratic norm taking place on the left," Fareed says.
 
Next, Fareed is joined by Bob Woodward to discuss his new book "Fear: Trump in the White House." What are the biggest takeaways? How and why does he use confidential sources? How different is the Trump presidency compared with its predecessors? Fareed and Woodward discuss this and more.

Also: Ten years ago this week, Lehman Brothers filed for bankruptcy protection. A decade since the financial crisis, some observers believe we're overdue for another one. The question is: where will it come from? And what is likely to start this new financial fire? Joining Fareed to discuss the issue are Andrew Ross Sorkin, editor and columnist at The New York Times and the author of "Too Big to Fail," and Zanny Minton Beddoes, editor-in-chief of The Economist.

Plus: A number of states have announced renewed investigations into the Catholic Church and child sex abuse, while earlier this week, Pope Francis ordered the presidents of all of the Catholic bishop conferences worldwide to come to the Vatican in February for a meeting to discuss the protection of minors. Fareed discusses the recent developments with Ross Douthat, an op-ed columnist for The New York Times and the author of "To Change the Church: Pope Francis and the Future of Catholicism."
