Week in the NewsPlay
Larry Summers will leave the White House. "Don’t ask, don’t tell "doesn’t change. GOP trumpets new plans. It's the weekly news roundtable.
Supersized, genetically-altered salmon in the news this week. And everybody fishing for a way forward.
Republicans say they’ve got it, with their new “Pledge to America." The White House says its new way forward will be without Larry Summers. The economy boss will be gone at year’s end.
"Don’t ask, don’t tell" doesn’t budge. The GOP won’t budge on secrecy around who’s spending big money on politics. President Obama calls out China on trade. And China and Japan face off fierce over a fishing boat.
Our weekly news roundtable goes behind the headlines.
