Egypt in uproar. Airliner down in San Francisco. Boston bombing suspect in court. Our weekly news roundtable goes behind the headlines.
Big rivers of news this week. From Congress, with its fireworks on immigration, food stamps, farm bill, filibuster. From Egypt, where many have died as the military and Muslim Brotherhood face off. From the courts, where the trial of George Zimmerman in the death of Trayvon Martin wraps up in drama, and the young Boston bombing suspect made his first appearance. From disaster zones – an airliner down in San Francisco, an oil train and much of a town blown up in Canada. Hot times in the summertime.
This hour On Point: our weekly news roundtable goes behind the headlines.
