Today On The Signorile Show!

3:30pm ET - Yesterday Comedian Joan Rivers died in a New York hospital, a week after suffering cardiac arrest during a medical procedure at the Yorkville Endoscopy clinic.  She was undergoing an apparently minor elective procedure at the clinic when she suffered cardiac and respiratory arrest, according to the New York Fire Department, and paramedics took her by ambulance to Mount Sinai Hospital, about a mile from the clinic, where she was initially listed in critical condition.  The outpatient clinic is now being investigated by the New York State Department of Health and the New York medical examiner's office to determine the cause of her death.  Joining us in studio today to discuss her life and career and share some of their personal experiences and memories of Joan is Frank DeCaro and Michael Musto. You can also follow Michael and Frank on twitter.

4:35pm ET - Over the past few weeks the world’s attention has been focused on the events unfolding in Ukraine and Iraq.  With Russia taking an aggressive stance against the Western World and ISIS extremist gaining control of large swaths of territory in Iraq and Syria, concern over these crisis’s is understandable.  However, as of today, it looks like the fighting in Ukraine will stop today, after the Ukrainian government signed a ceasefire deal with pro-Russia rebels at talks in Minsk; and President Obama has also announced a coalition of willing nations that are ready to deal with the threat posed by ISIS.  Joining us to discuss and explain all the news making international headlines is Steve Clemmons the Washington Editor at Large for the Atlantic Magazine.   You can also follow Steve on twitter and facebook.
