Current news events and political issues were examined through reviews of the morning newspapers; interviews with journalists, newsmakers and legislators; and viewer telephone calls, faxes and electronic mail. In the first segment Mr. Winneker discussed today’s Roll Call and how the magazine crafts its coverage when Congress is in recess. In the newspaper roundtable segment, Mr. Alterman and Professor Loury, author of One By One From the Inside Out, discussed this morning’s headline stories. In the next segment, Mr. Eberstadt discussed his book, The Tyranny of Numbers: Mismeasurement and Misrule, on public policy and the use of statistics in problem-solving. By telephone Mr. Broder discussed his article on the possible presidential candidacy of Lowell Weicker. In the final segment, 85-year-old Sarah McClendon, still a working journalist, talked about her lengthy career which has included coverage of eleven presidents.
