FROM THIS EPISODE

Mayor Villaraigosa says he won't run for Governor. We look at the impact on next year's statewide contest.  Plus, with credit agencies lowering California's ratings--where does the federal government get off refusing to guarantee state bonds?  On our rebroadcast of today's To the Point, this weekend's deadly violence reduced the size of demonstrations on the streets of Tehran, but a few hundred did face tear gas and police batons again today. How serious is the threat to the ruling elite?

Reporter's Notebook Is California Getting Unfairly Dinged? 12 MIN, 32 SEC

Last week both Moody’s and Standard and Poor’s warned California that it’s in store for downgrades of its credit ratings, already the lowest of any state and approaching the junk-bond status. That’s led to a lot of California bashing. On top of that, Republicans and Democrats in Washington are condescending to the Golden State, and the Obama Administration refuses to guarantee state bondsJoe Mathews, Irvine Senior Fellow at the New America Foundation, is a contributor to the Washington Post and Los Angeles Times.
