News Panel: The latest on Facebook's IPO announcement, Occupy Oakland, and more
On Saturday an estimated 50,000 voters in Nevada will participate in the "first in the West" Republican presidential caucuses. We'll hear why Californians make the trek to Nevada to help get out the vote, and which candidates may benefit from their efforts. Speculation runs rampant in the wake of Facebook's IPO announcement. The multi-billion dollar offering has the potential to turn up to a third of Facebook employees into millionaires. Could it boost California's struggling economy? In the wake of heated clashes during Occupy Oakland protests last Saturday, an Alameda county judge orders activists to stay away from the plaza where protesters burned an American flag stolen from City Hall.
