    First Topic – A Bishop Running for President?

    A charismatic leader dubbed the "Bishop of the Poor" is an early favorite to make history as the first man to serve as a Roman Catholic bishop, then be elected president of his country. The Vatican is not pleased, and it's not alone: Bishop Fernando Lugo's candidacy not only tests the church's strict prohibition on clergy seeking political office, it also challenges the established elites in Paraguay. Lugo is leading in the polls. We look at the situation from a cannon law perspective and ask exactly what the Church will do.

    Second Topic  – Poll: media biased, inaccurate, uncaring

    More than half of Americans say US news organizations are politically biased, inaccurate, and don't care about the people they report on, a poll published today showed.

Surprised? Neither is Rich Noyes of the Media Research Center. He breaks down the study for us.
