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: the ongoing senate expense scandal, and whether the allegations deserve the amount of media coverage they've been getting, and -- in light of CPJ's damning report about Press Freedom in the U.S -- how they think Canada is doing in the same area.
