We follow the fate of the 2 American journalists sentenced to 12 years in prison with labor. The families of Laura Ling and Euna Lee say they are ‘shocked and devastated’ by this news, and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton says the US government is working to secure their release.
Will our government send a top official to broker a deal? What does ‘prison with labor’ actually mean? We’ll have answers tonight.
Air France flight investigators have recovered 24 bodies from last week’s crash, meanwhile a French nuclear sub and high tech acoustic devices belonging to the US Navy are headed to search for the flight recorders.
If we don’t know what brought the plane down, how can we prevent a future incident? The area they are searching is the size of Nebraska. This is no easy task. Karl Penhaul is on the ground in Brazil w/this story.
We’re waiting to hear what the NAACP is calling a “major announcement on President Obama” today, just ahead of the NAACP’s 100th anniversary convention. Will they be nicer to him than actor Jon Voight was last night?
He didn’t mince words at the GOP fundraiser he hosted, saying he’s “embarrassed” by the President and that this leadership would cause the ‘downfall’ of the country. Who needs professional wrestling when we’ve got politics?
Joe Johns has an incredible 'keeping them honest' story: A veteran spokesperson straight out of central casting, w/a gold-plated resume indicating he was ideal person to push for major veteran issues, winning over everyone from politicians to police chiefs and reporters. But here’s the catch: he was a fraud! How the heck did he convince everyone of his story?
I love this snippet I saw this morning: Apparently there is a man in South Dakota who won a $232 million lottery, and he is so well-known for his kind heart that his neighbors and former teachers worry he may give too much of his newfound money away. Excuse me while I race to the airport and catch a plane to visit him, my new best friend. See u tonight!
