Bruce Shapiro reports on the latest news from the US Presidential campaign. We look at the political legacy of Abu Mus'ab al-Zarqawi , the ideological inspiration for Islamic State group. Zarqawi was killed in an American air attack on June 7th, 2006. And Sally Riley ,the head of indigenous units at Screen Australia and recently the ABC, has made it her job to bring black and brown faces to the screen - and to put them behind cameras, on sets and at the writer's table. The launch of the new superhero series, Cleverman, proves her point that shows featuring indigenous characters can attract audiences as long as the writing is clever and entertaining. Just please don't call it 'diversity' she tells Phillip.
