- Inside the Headlines - 20140530 - James Moore and JP Sottile

Come "Inside the Headlines" with Newsvandal JP Sottile & James Moore. This week's three tiers include fanchising the war on terror; the economy doesn't suck--it just sucks for you; and the rhetorical, non-existential gazillion dollar question: do people hate Chevron? [Hint: YYYYEEEEESSS!] That and much more.

Tune in on the week's top stories presented by award-winning journalist JP Sottile & MUM Alumni Distinction awardee James Moore. All headlines listed below.
