Airing on Thursday, March 19, 2015: Media entrepreneur and former mayor of New York Michael Bloomberg is teaming up with fellow billionaire Bill Gates to help low and middle-income countries fight legal challenges from tobacco companies. We'll have more on that. Plus, the National Urban League 'State of Black America' report is out Thursday. We look at how Blacks and Hispanics fare with education and the economy — this year for the first time, the report includes a state level education index. We'll also talk about Apple’s first day of trading on the Dow with Washington Post columnist Alan Sloan.
