Voices in the Street – WikiLeaks: Government Transparency or Security Threat?

Play

Depending on whom you ask, WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange is either a hero or a traitor.  And a recent film called the Fifth Estate dramatizes the international non-profit as an organization that is run by a man who increasingly cares about his own ego rather than the anonymity of the whistle blowers.  Its posting of classified U.S. diplomatic cables led the U.S. Army, the FBI, and the Justice Department to call for criminal prosecution.  So what do YOU think about WikiLeaks?  We hit the streets to find out.

Play

With the government shutdown over and having narrowly escaped default on our debt, Democrats were well-poised to make significant gains in public opinion and perhaps the 2014 elections.  But the roll-out of the Affordable Care Act website found less than 10% of the 19 million people who tried signing up were successful.  So we hit the streets to ask your friends and neighbors:  Have  Republicans hurt their brand with their relentless, yet unsuccessful attempts to defund Obamacare, or have Democrats proven that the government isn’t capable of doing anything right with their less-than-impressive roll-out of healthcare.gov?
