A man looks at the iPad newspaper The Daily in Washington on December 3, 2012. Rupert Murdoch put the future of his newspaper and publishing empire in the hands of fellow Australian Robert Thomson as he set in motion the split of the media-entertainment conglomerate, and announced the shutdown of the pioneering The Daily due to a lack of readers.

James Rainey of the LA Times and David Gura of Marketplace chew on the week's big stories, including the sequestration condundrum, George Bush's comments about immigration at a conference in Dallas, John McAfee's shenanigans in Guatemala and the death of NewsCorp's iPad-only newspaper, The Daily.
