BRIAN'S OPENING THOUGHTS
Put on your big boy pants, Mr. President! Brian is sick and tired of hearing President Obama exaggerate the effects of the sequestration. Plus: Brian takes a closer look at Dennis Rodman's visit to North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un.
Dr. Keith Ablow, member of FOX News Medical A-Team, tried to explain the psychology behind Dennis Rodman sitting down with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un. Later, Ablow weighed in on President Obama cancelling all White House tours "due to the sequestration."
Jonah Berger, author of Contagious: Why Things Catch On, talked to Brian and Dr. Ablow about the logic behind his new, fascinating book that answers the question, "Why do people share some things and not others?" Berger explained that what we talk about affects what we buy. One of his favorite real-life examples surrounds the $100 cheesesteak that you can buy in Philadelphia. "The first time you hear about that, that's remarkable. You just have to talk about it and share it with someone else," Berger said. He also explained the six 6 principles in the book: Social currency, triggers, emotion, practical value, public and stories.
Head coach of the New York Giants and author of Earn the Right to Win: How Success in Any Field Starts with Superior Preparation, Tom Coughlin, talked to Brian about his journey that brought him to become the head coach of the Giants, and also about his new book.
America's Newsroom co-hosts Bill Hemmer and Martha MacCallum weighed in on the White House's PR move of cancelling all White House tours "due to the sequestration." "How much does it cost to take a self-guided tour of the White House?!" asked MacCallum.
