We start with a follow-up to yesterday’s much-anticipated Senate Intelligence Committee report on the C.I.A.’s post-9/11 “enhanced interrogation” program: How much did it cost, and who were the architects behind it? Then, the LAUSD is one of six large school districts in the country that wants to ban antibiotic-treated chickens from cafeterias. Are they heading for a fight with the poultry industry? Next, we talk to a journalist who traveled to the South Texas border and made a documentary about what happens when Mexican migrants forced to take dangerous routes into the U.S. don’t make it. Finally, in our weekly Internet roundup, we talk about the difference between trolling and reporting in the wake of the Rolling Stone UVA scandal.
