Brian Stelter asks Robert Costa about complaints from top Democrats about the media’s coverage of the Build Back Better act. Making policy news “accessible” is “a challenge for the media every day,” Costa says, but reporters serve the needs of the public, not individual politicians.
Progressive Democrats say they will not vote for President Biden’s $1.2 trillion bipartisan infrastructure bill unless they get a $3.5 trillion spending bill too, following House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s announcement that she would split the two bills.

Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY), the vice chair of the House committee investigating the Jan. 6 Capitol riot, speaks before voting to hold Trump ally Steve Bannon in criminal contempt for refusing to comply with a subpoena.
The House committee investigating the January 6 attack on the US Capitol formally approved holding Steve Bannon, one of former President Donald Trump’s closest allies, in contempt of Congress, setting up a key House vote later this week.
“This is such an important beat, democracy,” Robert Costa says. “It’s not just red versus blue any more… you have to see how power is being used, not just in the halls of the Capitol, but outside.” Costa adds, “More reporting is always the answer.”
CNN’s Jim Acosta talks to Capitol police Sgt. Aquilino Gonell, who was beaten with a flagpole defending the Capitol during the January 6 insurrection, about a recent Republican rally where attendees pledged allegiance to a flag flown at Trump’s January 6 rally.
The FBI is conducting “law enforcement activity” at the Washington, DC, home of Russian oligarch Oleg Deripaska, an ally of Russian President Vladimir Putin, according to an FBI spokesman. CNN’s Shimon Prokupecz and Elie Honig report.
Former President Donald Trump racked up more than $70 million in losses over a four-year period from his Washington, DC, hotel, while publicly claiming that the hotel was making more than tens of millions of dollars, according to documents released by the House Oversight Committee. CNN’s Brian Todd has more.
Time is ticking in Washington, DC as the White House and Democrats in the Senate look for a solution as Republicans refuse to help the U.S. debt limit. ABC Action News goes in-depth to explain the debt limit and what it means to you.
A video of the new Fox News studio in DC captured top talent and leaders at the network all wearing masks. CNN’s Brian Stelter says this is telling because many of the network’s top hosts rail against mask-wearing.
If you’re confused by the legislative chaos on Capitol Hill, Brian Stelter says, you’re not alone. He talks with two writers about how to demystify the subject. Catherine Rampell says the coverage should focus less on the spending amounts and more on “what’s actually in the bill.” Josh Marshall says reporters shouldn’t give “Republican misbehavior” a pass.
Daniel Craig describes how he "had no other thought" other than rushing to help people caught in a gas explosion in Ayr.

The Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse has found that children who reported being sexually abused by the late Labour grandee Lord Janner were let down by institutional failings.
The Secretary to the Inquiry John O'Brien said today: "It's clear that all these organisations, the police, the county council, really didn't consider these witnesses to be credible because they were children in care."

International Trade Secretary Anne-Marie Trevelyan has praised a new government initiative to offer £5,000 grants to households to replace their gas boiler with a low carbon heat pump.
