Marketplace for Thursday, August 2, 2012

Chick-Fil-A's CEO is in hot water for his recent comments opposing gay marriage. Activists have taken to the streets to express their anger, but what happens to those stuck in the middle? The Olympic medal counts are big news for any country in the Games, but one particular country has a bad case of gold fever. Meanwhile, reporter Mark Garrison hands out gold medals to the people who correctly predicted the effects of last year's debt downgrade. In the run-up to the presidential election, online ad space is running out. New York Times' Amy O'Leary talks about sexual harrassment against women gamers. And we hear about monks in Cannes, France, who are taking advantage of the masses who come for the famous film festival there.
