3/19/15 Podcast Brad Garrett

The recent news regarding the HBO series on Robert Durst, and his recent arrest, has cast the spotlight on documentary-styled reality television and how it can affect actual cases under investigation by law enforcement. Brad takes a broader look at the role television has played in this regard, from police giving television stations sketches of suspects and videos of crimes, to re-enactment series specifically hoping to re-ignite cold cases, with our without law enforcement cooperation.

Well, that relationship between President Obama and Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu never really did bloom, did it? And now, even the stem is wilting. Before his resounding victory, Netanyahu took Obama’s 2-state solution to peace between Israel and Palestine, and tore it to pieces, never to happen. Of course, before that he took Obama’s nuclear program deal with Iran, with a deadline for progress just a couple days away, and in front of Congress, tore it to pieces, inciting a group of GOP senators to threaten Iran directly that they too, were prepared to tear it to pieces.

On Tuesday, Israelis go to the polls to elect their next government. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is in a battle for his political life. Polls show a coalition led by Isaac Herzog has a small lead over Netanyahu’s right-wing Likud Party. Netanyahu’s controversial March 3 speech to the U.S. Congress, where he assailed President Obama’s efforts to cut a deal curbing Iran’s nuclear program, failed to give him much of a boost at home.
