With the expected Supreme Court ruling on Aereo, we look at what could happen if the online TV service loses. Plus, John and Bonnie Raines, two of the activists who broke into an FBI office in Media, PA on March 8, 1971 and uncovered evidence of domestic surveillance that led to the formation of the Church Committee, talk about the first time the US Government investigated its own intelligence agencies. And finally, emails come with all kinds of attachments - this week, a Harvard professor unveiled one with smell attached. We take a closer look at the technology that makes it possible.
