50,000 Mortgages to Modify at the LA Convention Center

Hosted by

Starting last Thursday, some 50,000 homeowners filled a cavernous space in the LA Convention Center 24/7 for the past six days in hopes of getting help negotiating with lenders. We hear about the tough tactics used by a nonprofit from Boston that set up the event, and hear from consumers at both ends of some very long lines. Also when Jerry Brown visited Cuba as Mayor of Oakland, his travel agent was a designated American traitor. What will that mean for his campaign for Governor? On our rebroadcast of today's To the Point, Facebook, a new film about the founder of Facebook and the suicide of a student whose sexual orientation was revealed online have focused attention of social networking. We talk about what it is and how it's changing the real world as well as the virtual world.
