Your Call 041009 Media Roundtable

On the next Your Call it's our Friday Media Roundtable. This week the head of the Associated Press threatened to start charging Google, Yahoo and the Huffington Post for using AP stories.

We'll be joined by Robert Parry of Consortium News, Rekha Basu of the Des Moines Register, foreign policy analyst Gareth Porter and Dave Zirin, the first sports reporter for The Nation magazine. Where did you see the best reporting this week and where did it fall short? It's Your Call with Rose Aguilar and you.
