Program Segments

Hour A, Segment 1

Obama’s tour on economy

Practical economic impact of Obamacare on small business owners

New protector of religious liberty: Robert P. George

Jim Henry is a reporter for The World and Everything in It.

President Obama kicked off a series of economic addresses this week with a speech at Knox College in Galesburg, Illinois. Though the White House had already stated the speech wouldn’t contain many new proposals, the president hit on four areas he feels need more government spending:  jobs, education, housing, and retirement security.

For an example of how Obamacare is affecting small businesses out in the real world, senior correspondent Kent Covington talked with a Texas employer turned upside down by the new law.

A new survey by the U-S Chamber of Commerce finds nearly three quarters of business owners said Obamacare makes it more difficult to hire and half reported they will have to cut full time workers entirely or replace them with part time employees. 

This week, Robert P. George was elected this week to head the U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom. Read "Religious Freedom Is About More Than Religion" by Dr. George and USCIRF vice-chair Katrina Lantos Swett from Friday's Wall Street Journal.

Hour A, Segment 4

British Prime Minister announces crackdown on Internet pornography

Film review: Megan Basham on The Conjuring

This week, Prime Minister David Cameron announced measures to restrict access to pornography through the Internet, citing the need to balance freedom with responsibility. The new restrictions would set filters to ‘on’ by default. Someone wanting to view pornography would have to proactively call and ask for the filters to be turned off. 

For more, read “UK leader moves to shield kids from porn,” written by WORLD News Group reporter Daniel James Devine. 

Megan Basham is the entertainment editor for WORLD News Group. She screened R-rated horror film The Conjuring because it was being marketed to churchgoers and Christian audiences. She doesn’t have many positive things to say about it. You can read her review here.
