‘CBSN: On Assignment’ Episode Guide (July 31): How ISIS Leaders Are Turning Kids Into Potential Killers

“CBSN: On Assignment” Series Premiere (07/31/17) – Charlie D’Agata reports from Mosul, Iraq where ISIS leaders have indoctrinated a generation of children into potential killers. D’Agata talks with a mom who fears her children were brainwashed by ISIS and aid workers in desperate need of help.

From Japan, Adam Yamaguchi investigates the country’s attempt to repopulate with robots as it faces one of the largest population collapses in modern history. He visits an abandoned school, closed because there aren’t enough children to keep it open, and he gets up close to the realistic looking – and acting – robots that some Japanese are now taking on as friends and roommates.

Also, in a CBS News investigation, Vladimir Duthiers looks into visa fraud and how foreign workers are expanding auto plants across America. CBS News spent five months reporting in Europe and in the United States on how foreign workers find jobs here and what it means for American labor.

In addition to being presented on the CBS Television Network, “CBSN: On Assignment” will be streamed on CBSN and to CBS All Access subscribers through the service’s live streaming offering of local CBS stations. Additional content will be available on CBSNews.com and across CBS News’ apps on all leading digital platforms.

“CBSN: On Assignment” is a new primetime summer series featuring experiential reports driven by fresh voices and perspectives from around the world. Each hour-long edition of the series will feature multiple stories and highlight CBSN’s distinctive storytelling style, as reported by more than a dozen CBS News correspondents.

“The series will showcase stories that will bring viewers inside some of the most complex and interesting issues facing our country and the globe,” said executive producer Mosheh Oinounou. “Our goal is to bring unique voices and perspectives and a kind of immersive storytelling and production style not typically seen on network television.”

Since launching in November 2014, CBSN has grown viewership significantly and expanded its original reporting with new series and documentaries that have resonated with audiences. CBSN is available for free on CBSNews.com, connected TV devices and gaming consoles including Amazon Fire TV, Android TV, Apple TV, PlayStation(R)4, PlayStation(R)3, Roku players and Roku TV models, Xbox One, and Xbox 360, as well as the CBS News mobile apps for Android, iOS and Windows 8.1.
