Featured Audio

Congress is manuevering to avoid a government shutdown with a Republican-backed stopgap that has a huge enticement for Democrats -- six years of funding for the Children's Health Insurance Program. A vote is expected today on the continuing resolution, which would keep the proverbial federal lights on through mid-February. But many Dems, and some Republicans, still oppose the temporary spending bill. Then, how did a Cleveland-area man hack into computers over a 13-year period, as alleged in a federal indictment, stealing vital information and spying on victims?  And how can you protect YOUR privacy?
