Tuesday, August 30 at 5:00 p.m. on WLIW21, 5:30 p.m. on NJTV and 6:00 p.m. on THIRTEEN: Weiner: A Case of Sex Addiction? - Former Congressman Anthony Weiner found himself in the midst of sex scandals, starting in 2011 and again in 2013. Recently, the New York Post ran a report alleging a sexting SCANDAL with an unidentified woman who provided sexually explicit conversations and photos to the paper in exchange for anonymity. The cyber-trysts reportedly began over the internet in 2015, and Weiner's wife Huma Abedin, who stood by him through the previous two scandals, confirmed yesterday that she's separating from her husband. We discuss the story and a larger issue it brings to light: sex and porn addiction. Psychologist Dr. Jeff Gardere joins us to share his insights.

Harlem Pastor: "No More de Blasio!" - 2017 is quickly approaching, and for Mayor Bill de Blasio, that would mean having to choose between running for re-election or passing the torch on to someone else. In 2013, de Blasio won the election in a landslide, with nearly 75% of the overall vote and 96% of the Black American vote. Nearly four years later, the polls may show very different results. In fact, an influential group of Black church leaders is so disappointed with the mayor and some of his economic policies that it's trying to ensure he doesn't get a second term. Reverend Dr. Johnnie Green, Pastor of Mount Neboh Baptist Church in Harlem, is the President of Mobilizing Preachers and Communities, the group that is trying to oust de Blasio. Reverend Dr. Green used to fully support the mayor, but he joins us now to discuss why his support has dried up and how he is looking to change things around.

Can You Afford Long Island? - According to a recent study, nearly 64% of Nassau and Suffolk County renters cannot afford a typical two-bedroom apartment on Long Island. Pair that with fair housing law violations such as discrimination of potential renters, and Long Island quickly becomes a difficult place to thrive. What can be done to improve the island's affordable and fair housing markets? President of Long Island Housing Partnership Peter Elkowitz and Executive Director of Long Island Housing Service Michelle Santantonio discuss that and how to make Long Island a more viable housing market for all in this latest installment of Chasing the Dream: Poverty and Opportunity in America.
