State of the News 7/22/11

Today on our news round table we discussed the controversy around the pending merger between U of L Hospital, Jewish Hospital and a division of Catholic Health Initiatives.  We also got the latest on the misappropriation of funds by Passport Health Plan, the Judy Green ethics trial, and more.  We aired all three parts of Erica Peterson’s recent coal ash feature and spoke to her about some of the surrounding issues in a bit more detail.  Finally, we checked in with Courier-Journal writer Jim Carroll about the contentious budget talks in Washington.
