FROM THIS EPISODE

In Boston, Minneapolis and Los Angeles, the Obama Administration has launched a program to monitor the radicalization of young Muslims and prevent recruitment to ISIS and other terrorist groups. Does that constitute domestic spying? Has law enforcement earned the cooperation of Muslim organizations?

Also, Austin Beutner is now publisher of the San Diego Union-Tribune as well as the LA Times. We ask him what a regional approach means for news and the business of news. And how come he's the one to interview Governor Brown?

Policing Southern California's Muslim Community 16 MIN, 17 SEC

In Orange County, four Muslim men in their 20's have been arrested and accused of trying to help the Islamic State or other terror groups in the Middle East. Two arrested last month face charges that could keep them in prison for 15 years if they're convicted. Should Mosques and other Muslim-community organizations cooperate with law enforcement to help counter radical ideas? While the Muslim Public Affairs Council says, yes, Not all Muslims agree that law enforcement should be part of influencing what young people believe.
