We’re wrapping up the news of the week a day early this time around. As always, our news roundtable is our chance to chat about the week’s news with a panel of journalists, editors, and news watchers.

This week, our discussion topics include:

  • Reactions to the acquittal of George Zimmerman in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin and what the trial means for the future of ‘Stand Your Ground’ laws
  • The Senate avoiding the “nuclear option” of filibuster reform
  • The discovery of Multnomah County Chair Jeff Cogen’s affair with a fellow county staffer
  • Governor Kitzhaber’s staffing troubles following the latest headlines of advisor Patricia McCaig’s possible conflict of interest with a Columbia River Crossing contractor and Rudy Crew’s expenses
