A new study about breast cancer screenings is adding more fire to the mammogram debate. We discuss the history of early screenings and how women are supposed to interpret this latest information. Plus, we continue our Fault Lines series that looks at the income divide and everything in between; Madeleine visits a place in downtown L.A. where you can literally see the handoff from low-income to high-income residents. And we hear about a Mexican businessman accused of illegally influencing politics in San Diego. Is this what President Obama warned us about after the Citizens United decision?

Mammogram Study 15 MIN, 51 SEC

The latest research on breast cancer is adding more fire to the mammogram debate. A study that looked at 90,000 women determined that mammography screenings for women 40 to 59 years old don’t reduce deaths caused by breast cancer. We discuss the history of early screenings and how women are supposed to interpret this latest information.

Fault Lines: Meeting in the Middle 8 MIN, 1 SEC

Downtown L.A. is THE neighborhood in Los Angeles right now. GQ named it the best downtown in the country and the New York Times named it one of the 52 places to visit in 2014. And downtown’s also one of the quickest gentrifying neighborhoods in LA. For our series Fault Lines, Madeleine heads down to the Spring Arcade downtown, a place where you can literally see the handoff from low-income to high-income residents.

Mexican Money, American Politics 8 MIN, 23 SEC

President Obama said back in 2010 that the Supreme Court’s Citizens’ United decision on political fundraising would "open the floodgates" for foreign cash into American politics. Now, a scandal in San Diego has his backers saying “told you so.” We hear about a Mexican businessman accused of trying to influence local politics through clandestine donations.
