A federal judge dismisses a bribery case against two former executives of the Salt Lake City Winter Olympics organizing committee, saying the prosecution failed to prove its case. Tom Welch, who led the city's bid for the games in 2002, and his deputy, Dave Johnson, were accused of bribing members of the International Olympic Committee with a $1 million in cash, gifts and favors. NPR's Howard Berkes reports.
