Hosted by

The Chicago Tribune and Los Angeles Times are on facing serious financial trouble, and local newspapers are cutting back all over the country.

Also, the Federal Reserve plans new rules to crack down on shady lending practices, and the last vestiges of Saddam Hussein’s nuclear program are now in Canada.
