Up Front – Fracking California

Dueling protests in the streets of Egypt as the country barrels toward a referendum on a new constituion. Cairo-based journalist Ahmad Shokr joins us live.

Then: Fracking comes to California. The Bureau of Land Management has just auctioned off drilling rights to 18,000 acres in the nation’s largest shale-oil formation. We talk to the agency about California’s coming oil boom, and an environmental group fighting the auctions.

Plus: The Central Park Five has its Bay Area debut this weekend–we talk to director Sarah Burns about why the city of New York is now trying to supoena her footage.
