05/01/2017: We avoided a government shutdown. Now what?

After we avoided a government shutdown Friday, this weekend congressional negotiators reached a trillion-dollar deal to keep things going till the end of the fiscal year, five months away. It's not exactly a budget, it's more catch-as-catch-can. We'll explain how the process got so toxic and partisan on the show today. Then: Another executive is out at Fox News just as Bloomberg enters in a new deal with Twitter to get off TV entirely. Plus: Can you boost the economy with old buildings? We'll talk with the CEO of the National Trust for Historic Preservation.
