    Let it Rip Weekend: Mayoral race and EM's 'dumb & lazy' comment

    Monday, August 5 2013 8:20 AM EDT2013-08-05 12:20:25 GMT
    We take on the race for Detroit Mayor and the controversial comments by Detroit's EM calling Detroiters "dumb, lazy, happy and rich."
    A new poll shows Mike Duggan leading in the race for Detroit Mayor. Could those dirty tricks against him actually be paying off in his favor? Duggan supporter and community activist Malik Shabazz thinks

On this edition, we're taking on the story of the Oakland County oncologist, Dr. Farid Fata, who's accused of bilking Medicare to the tune of $34 million at the expense of his patients.  Is he really a monster?  Or was he just trying to cure people the best way he knew how? Former patient Sally Kelly thinks he's a saint.  She joins us along with Matthew Fiems.  He says Dr. Fata botched her treatment and she suffered needlessly.

If you or someone you love believe you're a victim of Dr. Fata, there is a meeting coming up on Wednesday, August 21st at 7:00 p.m.  It's at the Concorde Inn at 1919 Star Bat Dr. in Rochester Hills.  A representative from the FBI will be there.

Also, if you support Dr. Fata and want your voice to be heard, you can call (248) 238-9576.

Plus, there's an effort in Lansing to get voters to approve a 1% hike in the sales tax to pay for road repairs.  Most agree the state's roads need to be fixed, but is this the best way to do it?  State Rep. Townsend (D-Royal Oak) and State Rep. Tom McMillin (R-Rochester Hills) discuss that.

And the artist behind the giant Crisco can joins to talk about Detroit's bankruptcy as art.  Jerry "Vile" and colleague Rick Manore discuss some of their projects and what's coming up from them in the very near future.

    Robert De Niro says Tribeca Film Festival is his passion

    Tuesday, April 15 2014 10:47 PM EDT2014-04-16 02:47:46 GMT
    Robert De Niro is a family man, a filmmaker, an entrepreneur and one of my favorite actors of all time. He's also a co-founder of the Tribeca Film Festival, which has more to see than ever before. De Niro wears just as many hats on screen as he does in real life. The father of six starred in six films last year, owns four restaurants and a hotel, and still finds time each spring for the Tribeca Film Festival, Lower Manhattan's annual cinematic showcase.
