The Politics of Fear in an Election Year

Hosted by

National security has been a Republican issue, but this year the Democrats are using it too. They're focusing on the war in Iraq, while the Republicans are talking "terror" and "Islamo-fascism." We look at the different language used by each party to generate anger and fear.  Also, is bad spinach from Salinas, California a sign of a bigger E. coli problem, and liberal and conservative churches are being warned that political activity can be a risk to their tax exemptions.
