Legacy: On The Radar

Weekly Show

Congress passes a tax deal compromise; the administration’s assessment of the war in Afghanistan; and could a Federal judge's ruling jeopardize the Obama's healthcare overhaul? Plus, the legacy of diplomat Richard Holbrooke.  Joining Gwen this week; Janet Hook (Wall Street Journal), Pete Williams (NBC News), Martha Raddatz (ABC News), and Doyle McManus, (LA Times).

Debating the Debate

Gwen's Take

I got a lot of mail this week, almost all of it online, and much of it angry. The reason? I tried to tell both sides of a story.

The occasion was our PBS NewsHour “Spotlight Series” in Tampa, Florida. Periodically, we try to break out of the Beltway to make the connection between the stories we cover here in Washington and the effect they have on peoples’ lives.

Translating History

Gwen's Take

I have a little hobby as a journalist. I love to listen to how people use words. That sounds simpler than it is. It requires the listener to be skeptical rather than cynical, yet to cheerfully expose the meaning behind the meaning.

While I was deciding what to write here this week, a perfect example practically reached out and grabbed me by the throat. And I was sitting at the desk in the NewsHour studio at the time.
