And now for today’s Mid-Day Update Podcast: Weekend talks in Europe over a second bailout plan for Greece stumbled just as leaders in that country made progress on a deal to eliminate about half of the private debt it owes. Meanwhile, a bailout might be on the way for troubled homeowners if states sign onto a settlement with the nation’s largest banks over abusive foreclosure practices. The New York Giants won the Super Bowl, and so did Madonna and her half-time performance. But Ford said it didn’t after Chevy ran a commercial claiming its chief competitor’s pick-ups couldn’t survive the apocalypse. At least that means the auto industry is recovering, right?
