Healthcare, TV News and Republican Politics

Hosted by

A half-hour of television news contains less than three minutes of actual news. That's according to USC's latest report on eight LA stations. One Federal Communications Commissioner says, "I'm flat out alarmed."  Also, assessments of last night's debate between Republicans who want to be Governor. On our rebroadcast of today's To the Point, the US has the world's most expensive system of healthcare.  Is it also the best? Would proposed reforms being debated on Capitol Hill make sure the country gets what it's paying for?
