FROM THIS EPISODE

The latest revolution in the business of music is Internet streaming—but some creative artists complain they’re being left behind. How do they get paid when listeners have come to depend on getting music for free? Will all but the biggest-name performers have to find other sources of income just to stay alive? Also, Major Nidal Malik Hasan, represented himself today as his court martial began in the killings of 13 soldiers and the wounding of 32 others at Fort Hood, Texas four years ago.  And on today's Talking Point, another industry radically changed by the Internet as the Washington Post is sold to the founder of Amazon.
