NewsWorks Tonight March 17, 2014 – Full Show


    Dave Davies joins us to discuss revelations that Pennsylvania Attorney General Kathleen Kane shut down a sting that implicated several state lawmakers.  Dr. Henry Daniell of Penn Dental Medicine joins us to talk about his research into “green vaccines.”  Peter Crimmins sits in on the Philadlephia Orchestra’s first harp play-in.  Franklin Institute Chief Astronomer Derrick Pitts joins us for a look at a star just a bit bigger than our sun.  And Chris Satullo says while he may bt agree with Condoleeza Rice’s politics, it was wrong for Rutgers professors to keep her from an appearance there.

    Editors’ Note: In an earlier version of this program, Dave Davies said in an interview that to our knowledge none of the four lawmakers named as accepting money from a lobbyist had denied getting it.  Rep. Louise Williams Bishop told the Inquirer she hadn’t taken money from him.
