What’s on Tap – Friday August 14, 2009

Here are the big stories on the agenda today:

  • Moment of disaster: caught on tape.  Brand new home video that for the first time, shows the mid-air collision of a small plane and a sightseeing helicopter over New York's Hudson River that killed nine people.  You'll see the pictures and hear the horror in the voices of people who knew the victims.  Plus, new questions about two air-traffic controllers on duty that day.
  • A former Falcon – now an Eagle.  Quarterback Michael Vick, who's spent most of the past two years in prison for running a dog-fighting ring is back in the NFL, and PETA is giving a not-so-subtle reminder to people about his abuse of dogs and use of “rape racks.”  Alina Cho is looking at his new deal and fan reaction.
  • Pointed questions and heated tempers.  From town to town, the health care debate rages on the road for members of congress at town hall meetings.  Today the president steps back into the fray, heading to Montana, trying to stay on message through the noise. 
  • Push! And tweet! Yes. Twittering during labor is becoming a trend! Today Carol Costello’s “just sayin’,” have we finally crossed the line? Are we too wired?
