Your Call 091208 Media Roundtable

On the next Your Call, it's our Friday Media Roundtable, the day we discuss how the media covered the week's news. Asif Ali Zardari, the widower of former Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto and an ally of the United States became Pakistan's newest president. Sarah Palin still dominates the news and blog sphere as the economy continues to suffer. We'll be joined by Anchorage Daily News columnist Michael Carey, Graham Usher, an independent journalist based in Pakistan, and Kevin Hall, McClatchy's national economics reporter. On Friday's Your Call, with Rose Aguilar and you.

Michael Carey, columnist with Anchorage Daily News

Kevin G. Hall, the former South America correspondent, is now the bureau's national economics reporter.

Graham Usher, a writer and journalist based in Islamabad, is the author of Dispatches From Palestine: The Rise and fall of the Oslo Peace Process

Some questions you might ask Michael Carey:

1. Have reporters asked Gov. Palin when the money for the bridge to nowhere will be returned to the federal government?

2. Have reporters asked Gov. Palin in light of her opposition to earmarks whether she will also tell the federal government that Alaska will also not build the second bridge to nowhere--the one that goes near Wasilla?

3. What's the media scene in Alaska like now that the national media have descended in force?
