Wall Street Gets a Grilling; LA Responds to the Earthquake in Haiti

Hosted by

The Los Angeles County Fire Department will be in the vanguard of US aid to Haiti. While LA's Haitian community is waiting for word, LA wonders about an earthquake here. Plus, the art world wonders about the new director chosen for LA's Museum of Contemporary Art. We talk with Jefferey Deitch. On our rebroadcast of today's To the Point, commissioners investigating the cause of the Great Recession got tough today with four Wall Street bankers, including Lloyd Blankfein, the head of Goldman Sachs. Are the commissioners asking the right questions?  Can they help prevent another financial disaster?
