It’s Friday, and so it’s time for another “News Roundtable.”
We’ll look back at the news of the week with a panel of journalists, editors, and news watchers. We’ll look at some of the stories that we didn’t cover, and push forward some of the stories we already dug into.
This week we’re looking at:
- Rep. Todd Akin’s inflammatory rape comment
- The campaigns for and against fluoride in Portland water
- Portland mayoral candidate Jefferson Smith’s lengthy driving record
