Stateside for Thursday, July 3, 2014
Today on Stateside:
- A new report finds that of the $18 million spent on campaign TV ads over the first half of this year, outside groups kicked in 14 million of that money. We asked who had been working so hard to flood the airwaves, and how it might impact the way you vote.
- Detroit's bankruptcy settlement has gotten through the State Legislature and the private foundations. Now it's up to 32,000 city employees and retirees. Michigan Radio's Detroit reporter Sarah Cwiek joined us to discuss where the voting is now.
- Detroit Mayor Mike Duggan has been at the job for six months. Today Detroit News Columnist Daniel Howes reviewed his time in office.
- Tomorrow is the Fourth of July, but today we brushed up on the history of the Star Spangled Banner.
- And tomorrow's celebration will also mean lots of traditions, fireworks, parades, and barbeques. More often than not, it’s the men doing the grilling. Stateside’s Renee Gross looked at why men are usually the ones manning the grill.
- We also spoke with one Detroiter who refused to say nice things about his city. He explained why.
