Q's media panel - Jonathan Kay
of the National Post, Judy Rebick
of rabble.ca and John Cruickshank
of the Toronto Star - give us an inside perspective on the top news stories of the week.
At issue this week:
- How the media covered the ordeal of Tarek Loubani and John Greyson, who are now on their way home from Egypt.
- Revelations that that a Canadian spy agency - the Communications Security Establishment Canada (or CSEC) - has been spying on Brazil's Mines and Energy Ministry.
- And the ongoing turmoil being caused by the U.S. government shutdown and the seemingly intractable divide between Democrats and Republicans.
