The news begins anew with "Studio B"...

Newsweek (search) magazine apologizes for publishing a false report claiming U.S. interrogators desecrated the Koran, which sparked a string of anti-American violence in Afghanistan. But why isn't Newsweek retracting the story?

Attorneys for Michael Jackson (search) await key rulings as they proceed with defending the pop star against child molestation charges. Will the defense be able to call a Neverland employee to testify against the accuser's family? We'll get the legal lowdown from former prosecutor, Arthur Aidala, and criminal defense attorney, Drew Findling.

Then, the Bush administration is laying down the law to North Korea — threatening punitive action if they test a nuke. But what can the international community really do to stop North Korea? We'll ask Michael O'Hanlon, senior fellow at the Brookings Institution.

And, a new book says the next cold war, the next nuclear standoff, won't be with Russia — it will be with China. So should we be worried? Bill Gertz, National Security Correspondent for The Washington Times, weighs in.

Plus, low carb out, low sugar in? A new low sugar diet craze is sweeping the nation. But are artificial sweeteners really better for you? We'll ask Josh Fischman, deputy health editor of U.S. News & World Report.
