2011: Year in Review

Watch Complete Episode: December 23, 2011 »

Belva Davis and four seasoned journalists recall some highlights of 2011. It was a year dominated by partisan gridlock in both Washington and Sacramento, despite efforts by Gov. 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.

Guests:

  • Carla Marinucci, San Francisco Chronicle
  • Tom Vacar, KTVU News
  • John Myers, KQED Public Radio
  • Paul Rogers, San Jose Mercury News
