We start today with a look at the massive farmworker strike in Baja, California. Then, in San Francisco, the latest in a scandal over racist and homophobic text messages exchanged by five police officers: a 23-year veteran of the force who’s also openly gay just resigned for participating in the texting. Next, Monica Lewinsky is making a comeback of sorts, speaking out about the scandal that has defined her life in many ways since the late ‘90s; would we treat her differently today? In our Friday film segment, a look at the latest box office releases including Cinderella and Insurgent. And finally, what does the app Popcorn Time mean for the future of the film industry?
