Common sense tells you that our politics are polarized. In fact, so does the use of "common sense." Reporter Tom Bullock discusses a story he produced on the topic that's both entertaining and informative.

Reporter Michael Tomsic spent time in Winston-Salem this week covering the voter ID trial. He'll discuss how arguments inside the courtroom are different than the public relations spin by groups on both sides of the debate.

Plus, the debate over expansion of Charlotte's non-discrimination ordinance to include LGBT people. The most controversial provision of an expansion would let transgender people use the bathroom of their choice.  Before Council formally takes up the issue again, a city outreach effort includes the use of actors to portray different views on the topic.
