Wall Street protests continue

The Takeaway
The World
For over a week, groups of protestors angry at the power and greed of corporate America have been marching on Wall Street, as part of an ongoing campaign broadly known as "Occupy Wall Street." On Saturday, several hundred people took part in the march and at least 80 people were arrested. The participants are also fighting against a range of other issues, including healthcare reform and scrapping the death penalty.   We're speaking with Arun Venugopal, reporter for our partner WNYC, who was at the protests this weekend. Michael Kazin, professor of history at Georgetown University, co-editor of Dissent magazine and  author of "American Dreamers: How the Left Changed a Nation," also joins us.
