AC360° Radar for June 25th

Lisa Ort
AC360° Producer

Here’s a look at some the stories on our radar for tomorrow:

RAW POLITICS: Sen. John McCain will be giving a speech on energy in Las Vegas and then will attend a finance event there. He’ll also be opening offices in Henderson, NV and Woodbridge, NJ. Sen. Obama will be in Chicago.

KEEPING THEM HONEST: Drew Griffin is updating his internet drugs story.  After chasing down doctors, confronting a rogue pharmacy, and exposing just how easy it is to go on line to purchase prescription drugs Drew thought he’d get a reaction from the government on what's being done to stop it.  He did but not the reaction he was expecting.  The bureaucratic agencies in Washington are finger pointing over who's in charge to stop it. The White house sent us to the DEA, the DEA to the FDA. All the while the government seems to be MIA on internet drug abuse.

IRAQ: President Bush is scheduled to meet in the Oval Office of The White House with Iraq President Jalal Talabani at 10a.m.

GLOBAL ENERGY MARKETS AND IMPACT OF HIGH OIL PRICES HEARING: Joint Economic Committee holds a hearing to “examine the state of the global energy markets and the impact of sustained high oil prices on the U.S. economy.”

GLOBAL CLIMATE CHANGE HEARING: House Intelligence Committee’s Intelligence Community Management Subcommittee holds a hearing on “global climate change.”

MORTGAGE MELTDOWN REPORT RELEASED: A new report “Beyond the Mortgage Meltdown: Addressing the Current Crisis, Avoiding a Future Catastrophe” is scheduled to be released by Demos at the National Press Club.

    Sharpton telling Anderson he might burn in Hell. THAT is some riviting television. My jaw hit the floor. Those unscripted bombshells are impossible to top.

    The Global Climate Change hearing sounds interesting – Dr Hansen who warned of greenhouse gases in a Congressional hearing 20 years ago in 1988 testified again this week and said that we needed to move fast before irreparable harm was done – I hope his testimony will be part of this story.

    These look like great topics. Please don't scrap them for more Imus or the latest irrelevant political controversy. I'm especially looking forward to some possible Iraq news. The news media should be ashamed of how little coverage they've been giving the war lately (not to mention Afghanistan).
