Power Shift

Rafael Pi Roman hosts an upstate and downstate look at the power shift in Albany following yesterday's inauguration of David Paterson as New York's fifty-fifth governor.

  • Susan Arbetter from public television station WMHT reports from the Capitol with an exclusive interview with Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver.

  • WNYC reporter Elaine Rivera examines the latest news about the new governor and what we know about him from his past service in the state senate.

  • Budget watchdog E.J. McMahon and Good-government Advocate Susan Lerner discuss the latest fiscal crisis and the prospects for reforming the state government.

  • We get reactions to the Spitzer sex scandal from average New Yorkers and an anti-sex trafficking advocate.
The show closes with a preview of "Sunday Arts", which premieres this Sunday at noon. We present a curator's choice of the latest exhibit at the Guggenheim Museum.
