The items we covered in this week's iPM:

Examination body axe knife poem
Carol Ann Duffy's poem, Education for Leisure, has been removed from the English GCSE syllabus.

News and rumour is travelling faster then ever across the net, forcing the main US presidential campaigns to respond to gossip they might previously have ignored. What are the political realities of this new environment?

We heard from Chuck DeFeo responsible for Bush-Cheney 2004 internet campaigns and Zephyr Teachout, who ran Howard Dean's internet campaign in 2004.

Professor Philip Zimbardo, the psychologist who made his name in the Stanford Prison Experiment has turned his attention to heroism.
