Transcript by Newsy**** BY ADNAN S. KHAN You're watching multisource tech news analysis from Newsy Stephen Colbert: “I love Wikipedia. Any site that has a longer entry on ‘Truthiness’ than on Lutherans has its priorities straight.” (Comedy Central) The comedians never stopped punching, but Wikipedia held strong. The site is celebrating its 10th anniversary and expanding its horizons. New Delhi TV reports Wikipedia will be opening its first overseas office in India. “India was chosen because of its large population and increasing number of people using the Internet especially through mobile phones…” The site refuses to host advertisements and as a testament to its popularity, raised $16 million in 50 days. Co-founder Jimmy Wales explains to NPR how little investment Wikipedia needs to maintain its operations. JIMMY WALES: “Well, we have around 50 employees right now and we are going to hire a few more this year. And we have about 400 million visitors to the Web site every month. So, you know, each of the employees is responsible for about 8 million people. That’s pretty amazing if you think about.” In its decade-long history, Wikipedia’s biggest criticism has been its inaccuracies. Appearing on MSNBC’s Morning Joe, Wales says the Wiki community is now far more active than ever before. “So you know the big major controversies of our time, actually there is less trouble there than you would think. There is a lot of debate argument and so on, but people are watching it. Where it gets to be more difficult is in biographies of people who are not immediately in the public’s eye. Maybe they were – you know – because then maybe there is only a few people monitoring and so sometimes – you know – if there is a problem, it needs to be called to the attention of the broader economy." But the Economist says in attempt to self-monitor, the website is butting heads with its original goal – complete open-source information. “…Wikipedia has become ossified and bureaucratic, discouraging new users from contributing—that is the greatest cause for concern. In recent years its most active contributors have become obsessed with obscure questions of doctrine and have developed their own curious jargon to describe the editing process.” When MSNBC asked Wales if he is tempted by the massive traffic to take up advertising, Wales said no, because the idea conflicts with the content-neutral nature of the site.

Transcript by Newsy**** BY SAMANTHA MCCLENDON You're watching multisource business news analysis from Newsy EXTRA EXTRA... read all about it!! AOL officially bought The Huffington Post for a whopping $315 million... 300 of those million will be paid in cold hard cash. MSNBC says AOL is struggling so... it’s probably about time. NICOLE LAPIN: "A big surprise though I will say. AOL has been on this shopping spree guys. I was reading a commentary this morning that called it the last scene from Butch Cassidy and the Sun Dance Kid where AOL is trying to hang on surrounded by the Bolivian Army and has no choice but to make this move.” Tech Buzz Blog says the price tag alone is impressive -- calling it the biggest blog acquisition ever. “This also makes AOL the biggest blog content producer today – they now own Engadget, TechCrunch and HuffPo and many more — the big names in the blogosphere.” Arianna Huffington, Huffington Post co-founder -- told the Wall Street Journal, AOL shares her vision. ARIANNA HUFFINGTON: “This is my last act. Well I’ve had many incarnations ever since Athens, Greece, England, here, books, television and this is the most exciting thing I’ve ever done.” AOL will make Huffington the editor in chief of The Huffington Post Media Group, which means she’ll control all of the editorial content for AOL. A writer for The Daily Beast says there is a difference between being the owner and being an employee. “It's the difference between a mother and a babysitter. They both love their kid, but only one will race into a burning building to save it. Especially with a swollen bank account back home.” The Huffington Post gets 500 million views a month, and some say this is a great opportunity for AOL to use that viewership for advertising. One writer for Talk Left says this could be good business for AOL. “I actually like the idea, but then, I'm one of the few people I know who still uses an AOL e-mail account. So aside from the merger reassuring me that AOL isn't going out of business anytime soon, what does it mean for the news, other than a behomoth conglomerate?” That’s exactly why a reporter for Bloomberg questions whether this is a smart move for AOL. “We know that Huffington has some strong political views and is there a risk for AOL in putting someone in charge of editorial content with those views if traditionally they’ve had a non-partisan approach?” “We will see.” This is AOL's biggest acquisition since it parted ways from Time Warner. So what do you think? Will the Huffington Post still keep its flavor? Or will the new ownership water it down? Get more multisource video news analysis from Newsy

BY JESSICA HORD ANCHOR JENNY MECKLES You're watching multisource business video news analysis from Newsy. A reporter recently asked Speaker of the House John Boehner how many government jobs would be lost, under proposed cuts by House Republicans. Boehner’s response? “Over the last two years, since President Obama has taken office, the federal government has added 200,000 new, federal jobs. If some of those jobs are lost in this, so be it. We’re broke!” (CBS) Three words echoed through the press after the conference – so, be, it. One writer from The New York Times says once uttered, those three words went viral. “The ‘so be it’ remark by the Speaker ricocheted quickly around social media sites like Twitter and Facebook, with liberal activists mocking Mr. Boehner’s tone.” MSNBC hosts scoffed at Boehner too, one calling him a hypocrite. ANCHOR: “Speaker of the House John Boehner let the American people know exactly where he stands after two years of this . . . BOEHNER: “Where are the jobs? Where are the jobs? Where are the jobs? Where are the jobs?” A Washington Post columnist answered the question this way: Nearly one million jobs, by his calculation, belonged to federal employees. “…possibly enough to tip the economy back into recession. So be it?” But one writer for the Weekly Standard says so what … so be it. “…the federal workforce has increased by well over 5 percent. Any Democrat out there want to defend that kind of growth at a time when 9-10 percent of the country has been unemployed? Yeah, I thought so.” The Fox News network didn’t say much about it, concentrating more on the latest news from the budget battles – Obama threatening to veto the GOP proposal.

BY STEPHANIE STOUFFER ANCHOR: CHRISTINA HARTMAN You're watching multisource tech news analysis from Newsy Imagine being able to video chat with all your friends around the world -- all at once... Think it can’t be done? SocialEyes says think again. The brand-new start-up allows users to sync their Facebook profiles to enable multi-way video chats with their friends, allowing up to 6 people to chat with each other. Social Eyes also offers a way to leave a video message for your friends who aren’t online -- something unique to the world of video chats. The company of 10 employees has already raised more than $5 million from investors, including Seattle-based Ignition Partners. Co-founder and company chairman Rob Glaser says he sees SocialEyes becoming a key element in business relations based on how his company is already using it. “It’s amazing. This is one of the tightest teams I’ve ever worked with and I give SocialEyes a huge amount of credit for that ... I live in Seattle, the company is based in San Francisco, and I feel more connected to this team, and I feel like I know everybody on the team even though there are two or three members of the team I’ve never met face-to-face.” So now what? Tech analysts are predicting great things for the start-up, but Forbes reminds us, this is just the beginning. “SocialEyes has a long way to go for success, primarily in attracting people and getting them happy over what amounts to a new form of group communications. Make no mistake, however, it is coming.” And remember Chat-roulette? A writer for Wired reflects on that crash and burn idea and points out a potential similarity in SocialEyes -- the users who reveal a little too much for the eyes to handle. 
 “...though they may not be the rough and random surprises of Chat-roulette, opportunities for sexual contacts abound. (One can only imagine Charlie Sheen’s socialeyes dashboard.)” Despite the hype, a writer for GigaOm points out SocialEyes’ biggest threat -- Facebook. Even though Social Eyes connects its users through Facebook, GigaOm says the social networking giant probably isn’t far behind in video chatting. “The biggest name to watch is Facebook, which is likely to jump into the video chat space at some point. It recently upgraded its messaging system, and the next obvious step would be video chat, which could undercut services like SocialEyes and other apps built on Facebook.” Social Eyes says they hope to keep the service free but plan to offer premium options in the future.

BY ALYSSA CARTEE ANCHOR: MEGAN MURPHY You're watching multisource business video news analysis from Newsy. Wisconsin lawmakers could face recall elections after Governor Scott Walker signed a bill into law that strips unions of some of their collective bargaining rights. Republicans amended the bill to remove non-spending issues, effectively bypassing Democrats -- who remained out of the state in protest of the bill. (Video: CNN) And the Democratic Legislative Campaign Committee is moving fast to mobilize public opinion against the state’s Republicans. “We expect pins to get bowled over, pies to get rolled, but we certainly don’t expect our senators to get flattened. Last month, Sen. Olsen said eliminating collective bargaining is, quote, ‘pretty radical.’ But Olsen voted for Gov. Walker’s backroom deal to end collective bargaining.” MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow points to a SurveyUSA poll -- which suggests some Wisconsin Republicans are already facing backlash from their constituents. “In the district of Republican Senator Randy Hopper 54% of his District would please rather have somebody else represent them now. He's up for recall. That's not 54% of Democrats in the district. That's voters in the whole district. That's not Democrats. That's voters. Those who elected them a couple of months ago.” But it isn’t just Republicans in the crosshairs. In Wisconsin - an elected official can’t go up for recall until he or she has been in office at least a year. 16 lawmakers are eligible - and Republicans are launching their own recall campaign against as many as eight Democrats. National Review spoke with the state’s Republican Party chair -- Mark Jefferson -- who says -- the GOP isn’t worried. “I think we’ll withstand it, but only if we are able to mobilize our people and counter what the Democrats are doing. ... we do have a lot of taxpayers out there who have been waiting for these types of reforms to take place. And we think they’re going to stand strong on election day.” Still - a blogger for Forbes predicts recalls could be a sign of a bigger backlash on the horizon for the GOP. “But the recalls are only a small part of what is likely going to be a huge anti-Republican backlash across the nation, as working Americans finally realize what that party actually stands for: an playing field heavily tilted toward the rich and powerful, toward corporate power, and against worker rights.” Governor Walker announced that he is rescinding layoff notices he sent last week for 1,500 state workers because the cut to collective bargaining rights and public employee benefits will create enough budget savings.

BY ALISON SCHUTZ You're watching multisource US video news analysis from Newsy. It started out with his controversial “In Bed With the Boss” ad. But now, American Apparel CEO Dov Charney is under fire again for claims of actually “bedding” his employees. Five women are now suing Charney for sexual harassment. First, the Today Show interviewed former employee Irene Morales. In a $260 million dollar lawsuit, she claims Charney held her prisoner in his apartment for hours and forced her to perform sexual acts. “I was victimized by Dov Charney and that I won’t stand for this anymore and if there are possibly other women out there that they should absolutely speak up about this.” Irene’s siren was heard by four more employees. Including Kimbra Lo who Today also brought on set. No sooner had the story made headlines, than the company responded. According to the LA Times, American Apparel Inc. is backing Charney saying the alleged victims are in it for cash. Claiming Morales sued, “after making a number of extortion-like threats to expose the company to a threatened avalanche of litigation and negative publicity." Charney told the New York Post he received sexy e-mails with attached pictures from Morales. With subject lines like: “Daddy’s got a little naughty girl waiting for him.” and “A few now...more later, yeah? A lot dirtier too.” Styleite**** points out -- the workers should have seen this coming, what with American Apparel’s questionable “in bed with the boss” ads and the confidentiality agreement they signed in their employee paperwork. “....Charney has been sued for this kind of thing multiple times in the past should probably also be a red flag, though all the cases in the past have either been settled or dismissed because of the confidentiality agreements...Parents, stop letting your impressionable teenage children work for this man.” Yahoo! news reports the Canadian CEO admitted to quote “aggressively flirtatious behaviour with female employees” which he says, was entirely consensual.

You're watching multisource world video news analysis from Newsy “The former Israeli president Moshe Katsav is facing seven years in prison after being found guilty on multiple charges of rape and sexual harassment. Katsav, of the center-right Likud party, was president from 2000-2007.” (euronews) One headline reads -- “From Citizen Number One, to Inmate Number One.” Another -- “From President to Prisoner.” A former Israeli President -- and father of five children -- sentenced to seven years in prison for raping former subordinates. Moshe Katsav was once Tourism Minister -- and rose to become President -- before his calamitous collapse. A former Presidential employee identified only as “D” tells Arutz Sheva -- this wasn’t justice. It was a kangaroo court. "’It was clear to all the women who worked in the bureau that the relationship between Katzav and the complainant was based on full consent,’ D. said. ‘Katzav was not a rapist and there was no rape.’" But sympathy has been scarce for the native Iranian, who moved to Israel as a child. The Jersualem Post says the sentence brings to an end a five-year saga where Katsav brashly played an “all-or-nothing” card rejecting any attempt at a plea bargain -- in which he would have avoided jail. “The affair started with claims by Katsav that he was being blackmailed by an employee, and continued through a long investigation … two harsh press conferences at which he hurled blanket accusations at the press, and finally a long, seemingly endless trial that culminated in a decisive conviction in December.” In that same coverage -- the Post’s legal analyst notes -- the strategy seemed to backfire into a harsher sentence than current Israeli law calls for. “I think many people would be surprised by the severity of the sentence. Uh, the current Israeli law has a minimum sentence of four years for rape offenses. The law doesn’t apply to Katsav because he committed the acts before the law came into place. But everybody thought that would be a fair benchmark.” Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu says, this ruling sends an important message to all Israeli’s -- no one is above the law. “No one is above the law, even a president or a senior figure … Every woman has a right over her body, the right for respect and freedom, and no one has the right to take these things from her.” And a columnist for Ha’aretz notes this sends a message to all in power -- all around the world. “Had Katsav not stood trial, the fish would have rot from the head down, and his talented attorneys would have succeeded, heaven forfend, in turning their client into a model for those authority figures looking to continue to exercise their power improperly.” (SOC) Follow Newsy on Twitter Newsy_Videos for updates in your stream Transcript by Newsy.
