Outside Money in Local Elections, Bill O’Reilly, and a North Korean Kidnapping

Hosted by

There’s an election coming up next week for seven city council seats and three school board seats. We look at the outside money from special interests pouring into the races: where is it coming from, and what’s it meant to buy? Next, we turn to the state capital to look at the showdown shaping up between Governor Jerry Brown and University of California president Janet Napolitano over funding for the UC system. Then, Bill O’Reilly’s Brian Williams moment. And finally, the unbelievable story of how a North Korean dictator kidnapped a South Korean filmmaker in an attempt to build a North Korean Hollywood. And we take a closer look at the work of that kidnapped filmmaker, Shin Sang-ok.
