Hosted by

The reliability of forensic evidence in criminal trials is in the spotlight again, thanks to a Washington Post report about an investigation into the FBI's crime labs that could potentially involve thousands of people wrongfully convicted of crimes. Also, the Charles Taylor verdict, and a big shift in arts funding leaves PBS looking for money. Sara Terry guest hosts.
