Tonight on 'TakePart Live,' comedian Cooper Barnes guest cohosts with Cara Santa Maria as they break down the biggest news stories of the day, like the House stenographer who was dragged off the floor during Congress' shutdown vote. As if things hadn't already gotten out of hand!
Writer and director Diablo Cody stops by to give us a look at her latest film, "Paradise," starring Russell Brand, Octavia Spencer, Julianne Hough and Nick Offerman.
Our panel tonight will focus on the idea of "The Fifth Estate" and how it's changed journalism. USC associate professor of law Jack Lerner, founder of Tubefilter and The Streamy Awards Drew Baldwin, and The Journalism and Public Media Campaign director Josh Stearns sit with Cooper and Cara to discuss. How has journalism changed in the past 5 years? Are bloggers considered journalists, and are they protected by sheild laws? Join the conversation and tweet us @TakePartLive -- we'll read your comments live on the air.
"The Fifth Estate" writer Josh Singer also joins us, live from Atlanta!
All that, and another edition of our weekly Climate Report, tonight on 'TakePart Live,' Midnight ET/9pm PT on Pivot. Find Pivot in your area.
