Week In Review
The News of the World no longer. The victim of public backlash over allegations of phone hacking and bribing of police, Rupert Murdoch's publishing empire shuts down the muckraking British tabloid. And speaking of questionable media conduct, as the Casey Anthony trial captivates the nation’s attention, cable news hosts like Nancy Grace get a little too invested. Plus, James “Whitey” Bulger pleads not guilty; debt-ceiling talks come down to the wire in Washington and in the shadow of summer revelry – a spate of shootings and stabbings on the streets of Boston, as the town of Wayland is rocked by its first homicide in more than two decades. And, “thumbs up, thumbs down” on the President’s Twitter Town Hall and much more. We’re joined by political analyst Avi Nelson, Boston Globe columnist Joanna Weiss and Boston Herald reporter Dave Wedge.
