Hour 1

This week in our weekly political roundup of national news, we’ll look south to Haiti, where a Tuesday earthquake devastated Port-au-Prince, the biggest city in the Western Hemisphere’s poorest country. We’ll discuss the politics surrounding relief efforts, as well as  Google’s threat to pull out of China; the economy and unemployment; Sarah Palin’s FOX debut and her future in politics; revelations from the new book Game Change, including Harry Reid’s controversial comments about then-candidate Obama’s race in electoral politics, and subsequent apology; heat rising on Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner; continuing debates over the terrorist threat and responses to it on the battlefield, in airports and on the Web; and much more. Joining guest host TRACEY MATISAK to discuss the week’s news are JONATHAN V. LAST of The Weekly Standard and DAVID CORN of Mother Jones Magazine.
