First up, we’ll talk about a case going before the Supreme Court regarding a Muslim woman who applied to work at Abercrombie & Fitch, and was denied because of her head scarf. Plus, we’ll also talk about YouTube’s newest app that targets content to kids. And as Chicago gears up for its mayoral elections, we take a look at the disparity between candidates when it comes to funding for election campaigns.
