Media Roundtable

On the next Your Call, it's our Friday Media Roundtable. This week, we'll discuss coverage of President Obama's decision to lift the oil-drilling ban. We'll also talk about coverage of the rescued miners in Chile and the lack of coverage of mining disasters in the U.S. and Mexico. We'll be joined by Left Turn's Jordan Flaherty, the Washington Independent's Andrew Restuccia and independent journalist Franc Contreras. Join us at 11 a.m or send an email to Where did you see the best reporting this week? It's Your Call, with Rose Aguilar and you.
