Midterm fever, an American shoving match with Pakistan, and we talk with journalist Bob Woodward on “Obama’s Wars.” It's the weekly news roundtable.

Hot politics and a sad jump off a bridge this week. In New York, a furious Tea Party candidate for governor threatens to “take out” a reporter. And a young man jumps to his death after his gay sex life is broadcast live online.

The president’s on the hustings. The GOP hangs tough in the polls. The U.S. and Pakistan have a shoving match. Tony Curtis dies. A terror plot is foiled in Europe.

We have all that, plus a conversation with Bob Woodward on his book “Obama’s Wars." Our weekly news roundtable goes behind the headlines.
