FROM THIS EPISODE

Three days before the Iowa caucuses, the presidential nomination campaign is more chaotic than ever… with Donald Trump staging his own show instead of debating opponents. We hear what's at stake for Republicans, and for Democrats, in what's only the first stop in what could be a long road to nomination. 

Later on the program, Syrian peace talks are beginning…on very shaky ground.

FBI Releases Video of Fatal Shooting of Oregon Occupier 6 MIN, 30 SEC

FBI has released video showing the shooting death of Robert "LaVoy" Finicum, who was often a spokesman for the armed occupiers of the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge in Oregon. Footage shot from a helicopter shows him getting out of an SUV after pulling off into the show to avoid a law enforcement barricade on a rural highway.

In the State of Iowa: The Show Must Go On 34 MIN, 8 SEC

Monday's Iowa caucuses may seem like an anti-climax after this week's surreal TV drama, which is more about public perception than political power. Never before has a supposed front-runner put on his own event to upstage a debate between his opponents — while cable news channels take sides. We look for the significance behind the sound and fury for both political parties -- in Iowa and beyond, when attention will turn to New Hampshire.
