The News Roundup

After a televised national address on military strategy in Afghanistan, a controversial rally in Arizona and a speech to veterans in Nevada, the president's appearances eclipsed all else - including the eclipse. Also, White House senior adviser Jared Kushner travels to the Middle East to talk democracy with the Egyptian president and peace between Israel and Palestine. Two panels of journalists join Joshua Johnson to discuss the week's top news stories. Discussing domestic news is Domenico Montanaro, lead political editor for NPR, Salena Zito, Pittsburgh-based reporter for the Washington Examiner, Jeff Mason, White House correspondent for Reuters and Tyler Tynes, staff writer for SB Nation. Discussing international news is Paul Danahar, Washington bureau chief of the BBC, Nancy Youssef, national security reporter for The Wall Street Journal, Nick Schifrin, special correspondent for PBS NewsHour and Mike Finnerty, host of CBC Radio Montreal's "Daybreak."
