Host Bob Edwards talks with restaurant industry analyst John Ivankoe about the ongoing squabble between Pizza Hut and Papa John's over advertising. Pizza Hut says Papa John's slogan, "Better Ingredients, Better Pizza," unfairly denigrates its own pizza, and it has filed suit against Pappa John's in federal court. Ivankoe says these companies have been arguing for a while about the quality of their food, and this latest episode will probably work out in Papa John's favor.
