Week in Review: Harvey Weinstein, Amazon HQ2 and upcoming elections

Week in Review: Gun laws, electing leaders and food hype

This week one man killed 58 and wounded hundreds of people in Las Vegas using legal weapons — semiautomatic rifles modified with devises that make them act more like machine guns. Will this shooting change our gun laws?

Week in Review: NFL takes a knee, Washington takes on Big Pharma

Some NFL players took a knee during the national anthem, or sat. The Seahawks stayed in their locker room. Other players stood and locked arms. What does it all matter if the fans tune them out? Also, Facebook says it will get tougher on fake Russian campaign ads, but what is our responsibility to consume media smartly? And Washington state sues the maker of OxyContin, but pharmaceutical companies say they don't deserve all the blame because it's doctors who over-prescribed and patients who...

Week in Review: Friday, September 22, 2017

Bill apologizes to listeners for our interview with the man from this week's viral Seattle-Nazi-gets-punched video, and we look for the lessons.

Week in Review: Ed Murray resigns, Amazon HQ2

Meanwhile the two candidates running to replace him, Jenny Durkan and Cary Moon, meet in their first mayoral debate. Tucson, Arizona sends Jeff Bezos a cactus to woo Amazon’s HQ2 to their city.

Week in Review: Amazon HQ2, DACA, Dave Reichert

Amazon tells Seattle it wants to see other cities and announces plans for a second headquarters in another North American metropolis. The only Republican Congressman from the Puget Sound area said this week he won't run for another term. Who will take over for Rep. Dave Reichert?

Week in Review: Free college, freaky fish and fighting Nazis

The true damage of Hurricane Harvey is still unknown, but does that mean you have to wait to criticize some of the victims? Counter-protestors committed violence against Nazi and white supremacists in Berkeley last weekend; are they doing the right thing or only hurting their cause? Jenny Durkan has cribbed notes from Bernie Sanders and is offering a plan for free college, but is that enough to win over the political left? And is the accidental release of tens of thousands of farmed salmon...

We endorse this week’s Week In Review

The Mayor’s race in Seattle is heating up. King County Democrats have endorsed Cary Moon, so has today’s panelist, former mayor Mike McGinn. Labor unions have come out to support Jenny Durkan. What’s the significance of this latest round of endorsements? The city of Seattle is going to spend at least a quarter of million dollars defending legal attacks against the high earner income tax passed by city council on a 9-zero vote. Is it common that a local or state government agency would pass...

Week in Review: 'Fire and fury,' smoke and mountain goats

Seattle is reportedly within range of a North Korean nuclear missile, and there's a war of words between President Trump and Kim Jong-Un. Should we be afraid? Puget Sound is still tucked in beneath a smoky haze from British Columbia wildfires. But has it really "ruined summer?"

This week we're sweating out the news

Are you hot? We're hot. It's hot. Not as hot as it could be because of the smoke from British Columbia's wildfires, but we're still in a heat wave with temperatures in the 90s.

This week we're dodging distractions to bring you the news

Health care reform didn't make it out of the Senate, the military said it won't be taking action yet on the President's tweets about transgender service members and Congress passed a set of sanctions against Russia despite what President Trump has said about sanctioning Russia. So just how powerful is the president?

Week in Review: Body cameras, E-DUIs, bike share (again)

Seattle Mayor Ed Murray rejects a call for him to resign after a Seattle Times report that an Oregon child-welfare investigator concluded Murray had sexually abused his foster son in the 1980s. Washington's new distracted driving law starts this weekend. You already couldn't hold your phone up to your ear. Now anything more than the "minimal use of a finger" will cost you a $136 fine. And bike share is back in Seattle, with a new idea: leave the bike where ever you want to when you're done...

This week we're not cheering all the news

State lawmakers avoid a government shutdown with a last-minute budget deal that adds billions to public education. Is it good enough for the state Supreme Court? The Ballard Locks turn 100. We'll take up the good and the bad of a project that transformed Seattle. Americans shot fireworks, and North Korea launched an intercontinental ballistic missile. Some experts say it could hit Alaska -- could it ever hit us? And a Seattle driver beats a speeding ticket by convincing a judge that a...

This week we're not paddling away from the tough news
