Stories From This Week's Episode
December 23, 2011

Brown to make a dent in California's ongoing budget problems. Protesters made their voices heard from Tahrir Square, to Wall Street, to Oakland and beyond, while the last American troops departed Iraq. We also look ahead to 2012, and the upcoming presidential election.
