Washington Week with Gwen Ifill records at the Palladium


On Friday night, the Palladium played host to a live taping of Washington Week with award-winning host Gwen Ifill, along with journalists Dan Balz from The Washington Post, Beth Reinhard of The National Journal, John Dickerson from Slate and CBS News, and Amy Walter of ABC News.  The discussion ranged from the Republican reaction to Todd Akin‘s recent remarks on “legitimate rape” to the difficulties both candidates face as the election approaches.  Watch the full broadcast at or see the Town Hall online special where St. Petersburg residents pose questions to the panel of journalists.
