Main Topic Is Paris Hilton Getting a Bad Rap? 11 MIN, 48 SEC

 If Governor Schwarzenegger fails to commute her sentence, Paris Hilton is looking at forty-five days in jail.  With LA County jails so cruelly overcrowded, she may serve less than the full sentence.  We speak with one lawyer who says she’s getting a bigger hit than she deserves.

Making News Villaraigosa and The LA School Board 7 MIN, 11 SEC

Tamar Galatzan and Richard Vladovic both got big campaign money from Mayor Villaraigosa, and both won seats on the LA Unified School Board in yesterday’s final elections. Villaraigosa has promised commitment to turn around the schools but he won't have the direct control he was originally looking for. We speak with Connie Bruck who profiles Villaraigosa in this week’s New Yorker magazine.
