The show opens with a teaser of content from the show, which involves everything from spying to the 17th congressional district of New York.
Stephen starts off the show by introducing a new segment, "Who's Attacking Me Now?" It seems Stephen is being criticized for his report from last week about teaching kids about the need for bear hunting. Stephen goes on to play a recording from a call he made to the humane society. This somehow brings us to tonight's edition of "The Word," which is "Public-See," the opposite of privacy. Stephen thinks the average American doesn't care about privacy. Stephen suggests opening up to the government's demands for phone and email records.
Back from commercial, Stephen gets into tenth congressional district to be chosen, the 17th district of New York. Stephen goes there to interview Congressman Eliot Engel. They discussed the district, Iraq, the US/Mexico border, and then Stephen combed the congressman's mustache.
Back from commercial, Stephen welcomes tonight's guest, Nina Totenberg. They talk primarily about the Supreme Court.
This was another fairly average episode. The "Better Know A District" segment is losing its appeal in my opinion. The interviews aren't as goofy as I seem to remember them.
