Gwen Ifill and her panel discuss this week's news: the White House acknowledges the existence of a once-secret bunker government, while directing its public focus to pension and welfare reform. It's the vice president vs. the courts as pressure builds for Dick Cheney to release documents related to his Energy Task Force. And potential good news on another front as economists begin to predict the end of the recession. Covering these stories are Tom Gjelten of National Public Radio; Jeanne Cummings of The Wall Street Journal; Gloria Borger of US News and CBS News; and Jeffrey Birnbaum of Fortune magazine.
