What’s on tap – Friday October 30, 2009

Here are the big stores we’ll be talking about today:

  • “It’s hard to believe” they can’t find Osama bin Laden.  Secretary of State Hillary Clinton with a not-so-diplomatic message to Pakistan this morning.  Our Jill Dougherty sat down with Clinton during her trip.
  • Hijacked on the high seas.  A British man and his wife being held hostage by Somali pirates.  For the first time we're learning just what happened the moment their yacht was attacked, in a dramatic phone call from captivity.
  • Signs the economy has turned the corner, Stocks soaring and stimulus dollars providing a spark... but is it all an illusion?  Where are the jobs?  Our experts tell us when all this will make a difference on main street?
  • Why did that 90 dollar room you booked online end up costing you 175 bucks?  Small, sneaky hidden fees are becoming big business for the hotel industry.  But there's a way to stop being nickel and dimed, if you know how to play the game. Gerri Willis will show you how to beat the house.
