Murdoch's Bid, Fighting Obesity & the Saints of Somalia
Britain's newspaper scandal continues to unfold. Rupert Murdoch drops his bid for British Sky Broadcasting, and David Cameron does damage control. We're taking a closer look at the relationship between the press and politicians tonight with Tony Blair's former right hand man, Alastair Campbell. And as all eyes have been on U.K. tabloids, we're taking a closer look at the situation in North America.
Another story we're tracking tonight is from an editorial in one of the most prestigious U.S. medical journals. It calls for government intervention in extreme obesity cases. So if you're child is obese, the government could take them away. Is this the right approach? We'll hear tonight from a doctor who says, it is.
And we'll have more tonight on the drought in Somalia. The UN is calling it the nation's worst humanitarian disaster. Nick Purdon sits down with two exceptional women, known as the Saints of Somalia, who are fighting to raise awareness about what's happening in their country.
Tune in tonight at 8 p.m. ET on CBC NN.
