China, the US and the Fate of Blind Dissident Chen Guangcheng

Hosted by

The blind Chinese dissident Chen Guangcheng has been offered a fellowship at New York University. Will he be able to come? Will his family be safe at home? How are the Chinese government and the Obama Administration managing an historically awkward moment? Also, disappointing jobs numbers, and the Kentucky Derby and shadows over the Sport of Kings.
