News Roundtable: November 27, 2013

It’s the Wednesday before the long Thanksgiving weekend, so we’re gathering our news roundtable a bit early. Each week we take a look at some of the biggest recent stories with a rotating panel of journalists and other news watchers.

This week our discussion topics include:

  • The widely hailed nuclear deal with Iran
  • The speech Pope Francis gave this week outlining his vision for the Church
  • Legislation announced this week by Senator Ron Wyden that attemps to balance logging and conservation on federal forest land.


  • Jim Moore: Director of the Tom McCall Center for Policy Innovation at Pacific University
  • Ron Tammen: Director of the Mark O. Hatfield School of Government at Portland State University
