Media Roundtable: The European Union's Stimulus Plan & Sexual Harassment In The US Coast Guard

We'll also discuss a McClatchy investigation about sexual assault and harassment in the US Coast Guard. In a survey published last July, almost half of female cadets at the Coast Guard Academy reported sexual harassment. How is the Coast Guard responding?
