Internationally, we look at why U.K. media groups are opposing a corporate media maneuver from Rupert Murdoch. And in Hungary, government officials are trying to control the sludge from a toxic spill. Back in the U.S., we look at a new program to help people from skipping their pills, Chicago Mayor Richard Daley’s plan to sell off state assets to pay for the city’s budget shortfall, and a proposed casino in the Maryland suburbs… near a mall.
