Tainted Medical Scopes, Lead Poisoning, Property Crackdown

Hosted by

Today we dive into two national health issues.

First, a Senate investigation of the contaminated medical scopes that have infected and killed people in hospitals around the country.

Next, the lead poisoning epidemic beyond Flint, Michigan. Several other counties in the country report they have higher rates of lead poisoning than the children of Flint.

After that, a look at property crackdowns in Los Angeles. The city attorney is suing a mid-city motel owner accused of fostering a crime- and drug-riddled building.

Then, we talk to a reporter who profiled a Syrian family who made it into the U.S.

And finally, our regular movie roundup, just in time for the Sundance Film Festival.
