News Panel: The latest on the Occupy movement, the Prop 8 trial, and more

Watch Complete Episode: December 9, 2011 »

Even as Occupy camps are being torn down, the message of the movement seems to be resonating with policy makers. Gov. Brown, for example, has proposed an initiative for the November ballot to raise taxes on the highest income earners in the state. Also, a poll confirms the income gap has widened in California, as the middle class shrinks to below 50 percent of the population. A panel of judges on the 9th Circuit Court hears oral arguments on two issues related to Prop. 8. First, the release of the trial tapes, and second, whether Judge Vaughn Walker's 2010 decision striking down Prop. 8 constituted a conflict of interest because of his long term, same-sex relationship.

Guests:
