Drugs, Bloody Violence and Entertainment 32 MIN, 34 SEC

After a shootout that killed five bodyguards, billionaire drug kingpin Joaquín "El Chapo" Guzmán is back in the same Mexican prison he tunneled out of last year. He's thought responsible for killing thousands of people, including local officials, contributing to the corruption that's made parts of Mexico almost ungovernable.  The myth of his invulnerability is part of Mexico's "narco-culture"-- songs, TV series and movies that make profitable fiction out of gruesome reality. But the focus on his personal drama — including his interview with Sean Penn — is to miss the real story of what it means to be "the world's most powerful drug lord."

Previewing Obama's Last State of the Union 10 MIN, 47 SEC

The State of the Union address to Congress is a tradition that’s come and gone — for better or worse. Much depends on demands of the times. George Washington delivered the first State of the Union address to Congress. Thomas Jefferson sent his in writing. Harry Truman put his audience to sleep. Presidential historian and Pulitzer Prize-winning author Doris Kearns Goodwin traces the history and importance of this American tradition.


The audience applauds as President Barack Obama enters the House Chamber to deliver his State of the Union address on January 25, 2011.
