Drew Griffin looks into allegations the Obama administration is putting pressure on the insurance industry to keep a lid on the problems with the rollout of Obamacare.
There was plenty of finger pointing on Capitol Hill when a House Committee grilled the contractors responsible for the healthcare.gov website. The two main companies blamed each other, along with poor federal oversight. But there are serious questions emerging about the track record of one of those companies, CGI Federal. Drew Griffin has a closer look.
The government's website where people sign up for health care exchanges under Obamacare launched the same day the government shut down. It has been plagued with major glitches, and even Obamacare supporters call it a mess. The White House has repeatedly refused to tell us how many people have signed up for insurance through the website. It is now day 16, and we're still waiting for numbers. 360's Drew Griffin has the story.
The new movie "Captain Phillips" opens this Friday. It's a drama about the real-life ordeal of Captain Richard Phillips, who was the commander of a cargo vessel that was overrun by pirates off the coast of Somalia in 2009.

But some members of that crew claim the true Captain Richard Phillips was anything but heroic. Drew Griffin has the story.
