Fifty Years Later: The Legacy of JFK

Hosted by

It's 50 years to the day since John F. Kennedy was assassinated in Dallas. We hear about his accomplishments, his failures and why he's popularly regarded as one of America's best presidents. Also, what will the Senate's nuclear winter bring? On today's Talking Point, the FCC may allow passengers to use cell phones on airplanes. What would that mean for what airlines call "the in-flight experience?"
