Steve talks about how we might respond to sensational news coverage about everything from drugs to nuclear power. As we move through the Great Recession the media tell us we might be headed toward inflation or deflation, so Steve interviews Pete Kendall, author of The Mania Chronicles: A Real-Time Account of the Great Financial Bubble (1995-2008). Then, Steve examines the recent course of the U.S. Supreme Court and whether it has turned to the right or not.
