Listen

The stories that had us talking this week were diverse, ranging from the impact of a new NHL rights deal, to the new Snowden documents on G20 spying, to the ongoing plight of the Arctic 30.

Jian sits down with the Q media panel to discuss the coverage of these issues. Joining him today are Jonathan Kay of the National Post, Judy Rebick of rabble.ca and -- filling in for the Toronto Star's John Cruickshank -- CBC's Director of News Content, David Walmsley.

Kay's guide to nipple classification

Sometimes our panelists say things we simply have to quote. This week, the prize goes to Jonathan Kay for his defense of the New York Times cover that featured a (partial nipple).

In response to the outcry, the Times published a blog post explaining the paper's decision to use the image. You can hear our panelists weigh in on "nipplegate" toward the end of today's segment (19:05).
