Grand Plans for Eli Broad's Grand Avenue Museum

Hosted by

The winning design for Eli Broad's new museum across the street from Disney Hall has been unveiled. We hear from Broad, the architect and LA Times architecture critic Christopher Hawthorne. Also, Blue Shield of California is demanding up to 59 percent more from individual holders of insurance policies even though Anthem Blue Cross tried and failed to get 39 percent increases just last year. Plus, Jerry Brown's staff will include an unpaid job for his wife, Anne Gust Brown. On our rebroadcast of today's To the Point, tracking consumers on the Internet and selling detailed profiles is a $400 million business expected to double this year. Advertisers have real-time access even though users don't know. Will new privacy laws be needed to restore consumers' confidence?  Is there any good news about this kind of intrusion?
