What’s on Tap – Thursday October 1, 2009

Here are the big stories on the agenda today:

  • Iran wants respect and the world wants answers as historic nuclear talks get underway in Geneva this morning.  The White House now says Iran faces drastic international sanctions if negotiations collapse.  But does Iran care? Read more
  • We are live on the ground in American Samoa, where a massive earthquake triggered a wall of water, a killer wave that level homes up to a mile inland.  One of the first, first-hand accounts of the destruction, live this morning. Read more
  • Pitchman in chief, President Obama joins the first lady in Denmark tomorrow to try and persuade the International Olympic Committee to hold the 2016 games in his hometown of Chicago.  The president's taken some heat for making the trip.  What if it fails?  Our Ed Henry will be live from Copenhagen with the latest.  We’re also talking to Scott Pippen, – the Chicago Bulls legend and a man who brought home a gold medal with the original “dream team” – about what this could mean for the city.
  • The other bank charges you.  Then your bank charges you for having the audacity to swipe your card somewhere else!!  When will the madness end?  Well this morning there's new proof that the cost of money is slowly, but surely killing us.  A new survey says ATM fees have exploded, even in this recession.  It now costs an average of more than $3.50 to use another bank's ATM.  That's up 16 percent from 2004.  Haven’t they got enough from us already?
