Airing on Wednesday, May 13, 2015: First up, we'll talk about Facebook's push to house articles directly on its site. We'll also get a glimpse at Macy’s bottom line, which reports its earnings Wednesday morning. The company recently said it would open four discount stores in New York. We look at what’s driving that strategy for Macy’s and its competitors. Plus, we'll talk about the most expensive painting ever sold at auction ... and whether it was even worth it.
