Oscars Fall Flat, Retaking Mosul, and Robert Durst Speaks in 'The Jinx'

Hosted by

We start today with our weekly television roundup and recap last night’s lackluster Oscar show. Then, President Obama says the U.S. will help Iraqi soldiers take back the city of Mosul from the terrorist group ISIS. Good idea/bad idea? Next, Madeleine talks to the filmmakers behind the new HBO miniseries The Jinx: The Life and Deaths of Robert Durst, a six-part documentary about a billionaire New York real estate heir who’s been suspected but never convicted in three murders. And finally, we hear from one of the reporters behind a New York Times investigation into research funding for a leading climate change denier.
