When you remove the agenda, what do the headlines really mean? 

Join us for a special edition of the Commdigihour presenting a discussion with Editor in Chief Lisa Ruth talking to Senior Political Editor Jim Picht about some of the most critical issues of the day.

Ruth, who is also a former CIA officer and an expert on international relations, and Picht, a PhD economist and professor at Louisiana Honors College with extensive experience in international affairs will start with a hard look at what is driving the immigration flood and some creative options for stemming the tide.

They will also examine two of this week’s top political stories, the allegations of Harry Reid’s involvement in the Utah bribery case and new revelations that GOP legislators worked against Tea Party candidate McDaniels in Mississippi. They will also discuss this week’s statements by Federal Reserve Chairman Janet Yellen on the economy, and explain what it means to America's taxpayers.
