Where's The Beef?

Where's the beef? I've been looking for it ever since word began filtering out that the FBI and others were on multi-state raids today, rounding up peeps and information related to the alleged Times Square bomber, Faisal Shahzad. The raids are trying to connect the dots and make the money connection to Shahzad, looking for those who helped him financially.

The raids in Massachusetts, New York and New Jersey did not represent a "big break" in the case, one law enforcement official told The New York Times today.

They did yield, however, a couple of arrests for immigration violations.

So in the end, the money trail is the beef, an important link, but not the stop-the-presses development that it appeared to be earlier. v We'll have the latest on the searches and any new developments in the Times Square bomb plot, tonight at 11.

Also at 11, talk about contradictions: Pres. Obama, who says he wants to reform Wall Street and the financial markets, is in New York tonight, raising money from Wall Streeters at a $50,000-per-couple event at the St. Regis Hotel.

The President's also here to thank the NYPD and the vendors in Times Square who stopped the car bomb attack two weeks ago.

And you've got to hand it to him for guttiness: Yesterday the White House cut New York's share of transit security money. Jeff Pegues is covering the President's visit for us, at 11.

And everyone talks about eating healthier, but on a day-to-day basis, it's not always easy. One reason: the places you shop may not have the healthiest foods. Tonight we're going to take a closer look at your local bodega; for many people it's their main food store.

Our Carolina Leid goes with a nutritionist into one bodega to analyze what's healthy and what's not. We'll also have any breaking news of the night, plus Lee Goldberg's AccuWeather forecast, and Scott Clark with the night's sports. I hope you can join Liz Cho and me, tonight at 11.
