Segments:

If a new poll is to be believed, the so-called war on women has already cost Mitt Romney the election. But Republicans are still trying to win at all costs by keeping eligible voters, especially Latinos, away from the polls. (Guest: Bill Boyarsky.)

A tape recorded in 2005 catches Paul Ryan celebrating some of Ayn Rand’s more controversial views. Richard Eskow, a senior fellow at the Campaign for America’s Future and a former Wall Street analyst, joins us to explain.

Dr. Martin Makary of Johns Hopkins is the author of “Unaccountable: What Hospitals Won’t Tell You and How Transparency Can Revolutionize Health Care.” He argues that doctors, nurses and hospitals are allowed to get away with obvious and dangerous mistakes simply because no one is watching.

Nato Green is a comedian who toured many of the nation’s Occupy protests and now writes for the Chris Rock-produced late-night show “Totally Biased With W. Kamau Bell” on FX.
