Great segment. Seems spot-on as Mark Weisbrot points out that U.S. press focuses on the distractions (Sex scandals) instead of the substance of our relationships with countries in Central and South America.

I would love to hear another segment about the status of the coo in Honduras.

The coverage of this summit showed poor state of US journalism.

This is the first segment I've heard in the mainstream media, to say anything about the summit other than the scandal.
