Hospital Safety, A Sugar Warning, and “Finding Vivian Maier”

Hosted by  • 

Seven patients at UCLA’s Ronald Reagan Medical Center have been infected with a drug-resistant superbug called CRE, and the hospital is warning others who might’ve been exposed. We look at the problem of medical errors and patient safety. Next, an expert panel is recommending that the federal government create a sugar tax to combat our obesity problem. How bad is sugar really for our health, and would a tax help? In our weekly Internet roundup, we mark the 25th anniversary of Photoshop by looking at how it has changed photojournalism and beauty standards. Then, continuing a weeklong series of interviews with the filmmakers behind this year’s Oscar-nominated documentaries, Madeleine speaks with the co-director of Finding Vivian Maier. And finally, with the Academy Awards coming up on Sunday, we take a look at the red carpet economy.
