4:00 – First Appeals Court Victory Against HHS Mandate
A federal appeals court today issued an order granting a motion for a preliminary injunction that temporarily blocks the implementation of the HHS mandate against a Missouri business owner. The decision is the first occasion on which a plaintiff has secured a legal victory against the HHS mandate at the federal appeals court level. Most of the dozens of cases against the HHS mandate are still at the federal district court level. We talk to Frank Manion, the attorney who argued the case.
4:20 – 6:00 - Direct to My Desk - Two and a Half Men: Hero or Hypocrite?
Angus Turner Jones, the "half" of CBS's Two and a Half Men, sent shockwaves through the entertainment world this week by denouncing his own show, the third highest-ranked TV comedy, as "filth" and urging viewers to stop watching. Since age 10, Jones has played the character Jake Harper for nine seasons—eight of those as Hollywood's highest-paid child actor, making roughly $8 million annually. His declaration was spurred in part by his newfound faith in God, a faith he says is at odds with the themes of the show. But he hasn’t left the show. We talk about this story, the HHS Mandate victory and we give you the opportunity to raise the questions and topics that matter most to you.
