The big corporate headline of the day is an industrial story, a commodities story, a global trade story and a good ol’ wow-that’s-an-interesting-move story. Ford Motor Company announced this morning it’s going to stop making cars for the North American market, save the iconic Mustang. We’ll talk about what that means for the company and the auto industry writ large. Then: Despite Facebook’s recent privacy fiasco, the company reported a 63 percent increase in year-over-year profits for the first quarter. We’ll explain why. Plus: Teachers have been striking all over the country this spring, but there’s another massive reorganization in Puerto Rico’s schools you need to know about. We’ll bring you the view from the ground.
