Goodbye Y Chromosome, Hello Jimi Sex Tape

Bill Radke

Full Episode Audio

1. Sen. Baraka Obama's ex-pastor this week continued to praise Louis Farrakhan, suggested the government created HIV and said the U.S. was attacked because of its own terrorism. Obama finally disavowed him -- is that good news, bad news or no news?

2. Members of the House of Representatives get their cars paid for by taxpayers. This week, The New York Times reported that those cars are often low-mileage, high-priced and foreign. Does that sound like good news, bad news, or no news?

3. An Oxford University genetics professor predicts the human male will disappear in 125,000 years. He says the Y chromosome is deteriorating and cannot repair itself, and men are doomed. Is that good news, bad news or no news?

5. Two weeks ago, a New York collectibles dealer claimed to have brokered the sale of a Marilyn Monroe sex film. Now a studio has released a DVD called "Jimi Hendrix: The Sex Tape." Dead celebrities supposedly captured in the act -- is this good news, bad news or no news?
