- Inside the Headlines - 20140314 - JP Sottile and James Moore

Mongol wrrior princess KhutulunJoin us for the astute and judicious insights of JP Sottile, the Newsvandal and semi-lucid meanderings of co-host James Moore, as we go "Inside the Headlines" for another full court press of the week's stories of note.

Our three tiers today are power plays (what the frack?), five miles through the snow (public support for high income privates), and hear 'em roar (are u Reddy?). Well, I'm ready. Tune in and turn on. As always, links to all the headlines discussed--and then some--are listed below. Just click "Read more" (which is good advice in general, private).
