But all around, the news whirled on.
Secrets at the CIA and Dick Cheney and potential prosecution still in the headlines. Golden profit reports on a bailed-out Wall Street … bonuses to follow. Health care legislation moving on Capitol Hill. Casualties mount in Afghanistan. And Barack Obama channels Martin Luther King and Bill Cosby at the NAACP, saying “no excuses.”
This hour, On Point: Our weekly news roundtable goes behind the headlines.
