News Network In this week's News Network, we're joined by Gus Thomson of the Auburn Journal to discuss the storm's impact in Auburn, along with a follow-up on the mushroom poisoning in Loomis, and more. We also discuss the upcoming Nevada City Wild Mushroom Exposition. Jim Smith of the Daily Democrat also joins us to talk about new license plate scanners that are raising privacy concerns among Woodland residents.
Knife Fight Knife Fight, a film co-written by political consultant Chris Lehane, examines the closed-door intrigues of American political campaigns, "where blood is spilled, low blows are common, and the best candidate is not always the best person […] a world where the noblest ends are used to justify the darkest means." The film will be presented by the Sacramento Press Club at the Crest Theatre this weekend and we're joined today by Chris Lehane, the film's co-writer and Dan Morain, who plays a reporter and is a reporter for the Sacramento Bee. Tickets are available at tickets.com.
