The Nobel Peace Prize and International Politics

Hosted by

Last year it was Barack Obama. This year it's imprisoned Chinese dissident Liu Xiaobo. We hear about the Nobel Peace Prize, who gets it and why. Also, the Bank of America halts its foreclosures across the US. On Reporter's Notebook, if he hadn't been killed 30 years ago, John Lennon would have been 70 years old tomorrow. We hear about the many ways he is being remembered.
