Coming Up

July 23rd Show

TOTN's always a hive of activity on Newseum Wednesdays, and here's what we're buzzing about. In our first hour, as ever, Political Junkie Ken Rudin's got all the best bits of political news for you from the last week, and a doozy of a trivia question. And Rep. Chris Shays (R-CT) joins us to talk about trips to Iraq, plus Republican strategist Vin Weber. That's a whole lotta politics, people. We'll follow that with Ambassador Richard Holbrooke — he's delighted with the capture of Radovan Karadzic, a man he called "One of the worst men in the world, the Osama bin Laden of Europe... A major, major thug has been removed from the public scene."

In our second hour, doctored photographs. After news hit that the photo of the Iran nuclear test that was widely distributed had been altered, we all took a closer look at it. So today, a discussion about the ethics of photojournalism, and how to detect a photo has been manipulated. Finally, Starbucks announced recently that it'll close 600 stores in the U.S. this summer. We want to know how the closures are affecting the communities — Newark, for example, saw its Starbucks as a sign of its relevance and acceptability, and now some Newarkians (?) are banding together to try to save it.
