We’re following breaking news on the auto bailout. We’re getting reports that Senate Majority leader Harry Reid says the Big Three bailout is in jeopardy. Democrats apparently don’t have enough votes to give the Big Three the money they want from the $700 billion rescue plan pot. We’ll have more details by air time.
According to new CNN polling, the bailout is already a bust among Americans. Six in 10 oppose rescuing the Big Three with taxpayer money. In early November, nearly half the public supported federal help for Detroit. So what’s changed? We’d love to hear your take.
Some more baffling math from the poll: Three-quarters of respondents said they think they’ll personally feel the impact if the auto makers go bankrupt. We’re intrigued that so many Americans support letting the auto makers go belly up, while admitting their families will suffer from the consequences. Again, we’d love your input.
There are also new and chilling details about the Mumbai terror attacks. The sole surviving attacker is singing like a canary – and it’s a sobering tune, to say the least. We’ll also have shocking new video of the bombing to show you.
And speaking of chilling.. Some of the passengers aboard that U.S. cruise ship that narrowly escaped a pirate attack are also talking. Tonight we’ll have first-hand accounts from Americans about their terrifying encounter on the high seas.
