8/6/15: Republican Presidential Debate / FBI Surveillance / Local Headlines

Last Updated by MiWeek Editor on

Tonight on MiWeek, host Christy McDonald and contributors Nolan Finley and Nancy Kaffer take a look at the stories making headlines across the state:

  • The first of several Republican Presidential debates takes place Thursday night. The MiWeek team talks about the issues likely to come up for discussion and they speculate on the tone of the debate.
  • Community leaders in Dearborn are unhappy with recent sightings of an FBI spy plane used in surveillance programs. Is the investigation terror-related? Why has the surveillance taken place several times in metro-Detroit? The MiWeek team weighs in with their thoughts.
  • One year after toxic algae blooms contaminated water for residents in Michigan and Ohio, the problem still exists and is getting worse. Christy narrates a video, produced/edited by Ed Moore and Aaron Martin, which takes a look at the latest steps to stop this crisis in the Great Lakes.
