A day after the presidential debate and people are talking about... Big Bird. Mitt Romney said he wants to stop giving subsidies to PBS, even though he loves Big Bird. We explore what economic class the "Sesame Street" character is in. We also look at Medicare reform and polling data from Gallup. Plus, how much would you pay to promote a post on Facebook? And stories on the impact of sanctions against Iran, crime in the bankrupt city of San Bernardino, Calif., and we check in with a Midwest farmer to see how he's doing after the summer drought.
