Elizabeth Warren Appointed in End-run Around the Senate

Hosted by

After fighting hard for finance reform, how serious is the Obama Administration about consumer protection? Why will Elizabeth Warren be a White House advisor instead of heading the new agency that will make rules for mortgages, credit cards and other consumer lending? Also, police in London arrest five in alleged terror plot against the pope, and if Glenn Beck can pack the Washington Mall, why can't Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert?  We hear how a joke might turn into political reality.
