Cenk talks to Chicago Alderman Proco “Joe” Moreno about why he agreed to stop blocking Chick-fil-A from opening a franchise in his district. “I think it’s a big step for the community,” Moreno says. “Is it the end game? No. It’s not.” Though Chick-fil-A has distributed a statement to franchises that clarifies they should not discriminate against employees or customers who are gay, the company has not confirmed — as they wrote to Moreno — that they would stop donating to anti-gay organizations through their nonprofit foundation. Cenk asks, “Why won’t they come out clearly when the press asked them, ‘Hey, is that it, you’re not giving [money] to these groups any more?’ They give very vague answers. Is that a point of concern?” Moreno says, “It isn’t for me personally, because I’ve met with them, but I can see why it was. … It’s their policy not to say anything, and I don’t understand that.”
Cenk and panelists discuss TWA Flight 800, drones in the U.S., and the latest on Edward Snowden. Plus, Sister Helen Prejean on her advocacy to abolish the death penalty and a tribute to Michael Hastings.
