The Ukraine, Facebook and WhatsApp, and Climate Change

Hosted by ,

Political protests continue to roil the Ukraine as President Viktor Yanukovych and opposition leaders sign a deal leading to an early presidential poll before the end of the year. But the battle lines aren't clear. Facebook buys WhatApp, a texting service for $19 billion. What does the deal mean for Internet privacy? Tom Steyer, a billionaire hedge fund manager, has announced that he will pour money into political campaigns with anti-climate change agendas.

This week, joining Bob Scheer, is Mike Pesca (Slate.com), who moderates from the Center. Special guest Kim Strassel (Wall Street Journal) is on the Right.
