Rick Perry's slow motion political gaffe, the continuing debt crisis in Europe, and the scandal that rocked Penn State University were — for better or worse — the stories that dominated the headlines for the last week. The Takeaway has assembled a panel of analysts to rundown, dissect, and wrap-up all the major stories of the week.

This week's panel includes Jeff Yang, writer of the Tao Jones column for The Wall Street Journal and blogger for WNYC's It’s a Free Country; Farai Chideya, journalist and blogger at Farai.com; and Ron Christie, Republican political strategist, CEO of Christie Strategies, and former special assistant to President George W. Bush.
