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, Walter Isaacson talked about the morning headlines and TIME magazine which he works for. In the newspaper roundtable, Representative Tom Campbell (R-CA) and Betty Friedan of the Wilson Center for International Scholars talked about current issues including abortion and other partisan issues. In the last segment, Charles Fenyvesi and Victoria Pope, both of U.S. News and World Report, talked about a new article about Raoul Wallenberg, a Swedish diplomat who saved thousands of Jews from execution by the Third Reich in Hungary. The article reveals new evidence which indicates that he was an espionage agent for the Western allies, which the Soviet Union has maintained for years after his death in a Soviet gulag. close
