The Pizza Lobby, the Amazing Randi, and Obamacare at the Supreme Court

We start today with a look at what happened during this morning’s arguments before the U.S. Supreme Court on the Affordable Care Act. Then, turning to local politics, we recap yesterday’s election results and dismal turnout. Next up, a retired magician who was one of the world’s most famous skeptics talks about his life as a debunker of frauds and the new documentary he stars in. After that, we go back to politics, but from an unusual angle: the pizza lobby is powerful and big, and it’s pushing back against healthy eating advocates in Washington, D.C. And finally, we stay with the food beat and take a look at bone broth. It’s being promoted as a cure-all by everyone from Kobe Bryant to L.A. chef Mark Peel, but does it live up to the hype?
