Main Topic Anonymous and the Real World Implications of 'Hacktivism' 26 MIN, 28 SEC

With hangings, beheadings and mass murders, drug cartels have created a culture of fear in Mexico, which extends even to the Internet.  In a recent YouTube video, a masked figure recently accused the Zetas cartel of kidnapping a member of Anonymous, threatening to reveal the names of civilians involved with Los Zetas if that person wasn't released. Was the cyber-collective called "Anonymous" practicing vigilante justice or an elaborate hoax? We hear more about Anonymous and Internet security.

Making News McCourt Agrees to Sell the Dodgers 10 MIN, 9 SEC

The Los Angeles Dodgers could have a new owner by opening day of next year, at least that's the goal of Frank McCourt and Major League Baseball. They reached an agreement last night. McCourt leveraged $421 million seven years ago to buy the team, the stadium and surrounding parking lots. Now a sale could bring in a record one billion. Jon Weisman is author of 100 Things Dodgers Fans Should Know & Do Before They Die, and blogs at DodgerThoughts.com on ESPN.
