Airing on Thursday, Feb. 5, 2015: First up, more on the hacking of personal information at Anthem, the second larger health insurance company in America. Plus, new research from the University of Pennsylvania says there’s a growing education gap between the wealthy and the poor. The wealthy are far more likely to complete college.
