News in Review

NPR's Tony Cox takes on a potpourri of news issues making headlines this week including: the removal of the Ten Commandments monument from public view in the Alabama Judicial Building; questionable security tactics in the Bush administration's plan to rebuild Iraq; and the coverage media outlets gave or didn't give to the commemoration of the 40th anniversary of the March on Washington. Journalists weighing in on the discussion include Denise Rolark Barnes, publisher of the Washington Informer in Washington, D.C. and Sam Fulwood III, metro columnist with The Plain Dealer in Cleveland, Ohio.
