News updates: The search for Eric Frein, breast cancer pink ribbons and the Affordable Care Act Round 2


Guests: Joseph Kohut, Karuna Jaggar and Julie Appleby

We get updates on three news stories. We’ll start off with the latest on the search for Eric Frein with JOSEPH KOHUT, police reporter for the Scranton Times Tribune. Then, October is Breast Cancer Awareness month and the color pink is everywhere from yogurt containers to NFL helmets and now, oil drill bits. Breast Cancer Action executive director KARUNA JAGGAR tells us why it’s time to rethink the usefulness of all those pink ribbons. And finally, the second Affordable Care Act enrollment period is just around the corner. Kaiser Health News reporter JULIE APPLEBY tells us the challenges that remain and what the law’s implementation has meant for consumers.
