FROM THIS EPISODE

Three of the five candidates for Mayor of LA have served on the City Council and one holds a citywide office.  But none of them is well-known to voters.  Tonight we’ll talk with political reporters about who they are, what they’re talking about and who’s got the money.  Are polls at this stage believable?

Also… the Dodgers and Lakers have made LA a great sports town, but the Dodgers aren’t playing and the Lakers are losing. So it’s all about the Clippers and the Stanley-Cup winning Kings.  We’ll talk sports.

Main Topic As Israel Tilts More Right, is a Showdown with Washington Looming? 22 MIN, 46 SEC

After next Tuesday’s parliamentary elections, Benjamin Netanyahu is expected to retain his job as Prime Minister.  But he could be leading a government very different from the one conceived by Israel’s founders.  They were secular Jews who were open to living next to a Palestinian state.  But religious nationalism is a growing force that could lead to historic change. Prime Minister Netanyahu made clear he supported Mitt Romney.  President Obama has signaled that Netanyahu doesn’t know what’s good for his country. Netanyahu’s expected to win next Tuesday’s elections but his coalition government may include people who no longer support a Palestinian state. Will Israel’s leaders once again turn their backs on international law?  What will that mean for US support—and for Israel’s relations with its Arab neighbors?

Main Topic How About Them Clippers, Lakers, and Kings?

The Dodgers and Lakers have made LA a great sports town, but the Dodgers aren’t playing and the Lakers are losing. Last year, the Los Angeles Kings stunned the world of ice hockey by winning the Stanley Cup, and this year, the Clippers have one of the top records in the National Basketball League. It’s all about the Clippers and the Stanley-Cup winning Kings. So what's happening with the Lakers? We talk sports.
