Marketplace Morning Report for Wednesday, October 23, 2013

The debt ceiling debate is back.

That's not to be confused with the other settlements JPM is confronting, including the possible $13 billion one with the federal government. And, tonight is game one of the World Series. In an era of TV that's easy to time-shift, people watching live is a big deal for advertisers.
