AlterNet Radio: Crazy Sandy-Hook Conspiracy Theories; Auerbach on Jack Lew; Fed Judge Curtails Stop-And-Frisk

This week on the AlterNet Radio Hour, we're joined by Salon's Alex Seitz-Wald who wrote this week about an absolutely disgusting conspiracy theory about the Sandy Hook shootings that's floating around among dimmer gun-nuts.

Then economic strategist Marshall Auerbach joins us to discuss Jack Lew, Obama's nominee to take over for Tim Geithner at Treasury.

Finally, we speak with Donna Lieberman, head of the NY Civil Liberties Union, about a key ruling this week on the NYPD's controversial "stop-and-frisk" policy.
