First aired: March 28, 2012.
The New York State primaries are on the horizon--we get into the nitty gritty with Mickey Carroll of the Quinnipiac University Poll, Andrew Hawkins of City & State, and Ben Smith of BuzzFeed. Then, Kenyan Antony Ragui founded a site called "I Paid a Bribe" (ipaidabribe.or.ke/) to fight corruption in his country. It's part of a movement around the world to use the power of the web against bribery. Transparency International's Ben Elers joins the conversation. We take a look at how the Manhattan DA is using Twitter to prosecute Occupy Wall Street protesters with the Wall Street Journal's Tamer El-Ghobashy. Finally, rooftop farming with Brooklyn Grange's Gwen Schantz and Ben Flanner.
