Media Roundtable

On the next Your Call, it's our Friday Media Roundtable. This week, we'll discuss coverage of the unprecedented uprising in Egypt and the government's efforts to silence foreign correspondents. We'll also discuss coverage of the response from the U.S. State Department. How are U.S. media outlets covering U.S. foreign policy in the Middle East? We'll be joined by Real News Network's Paul Jay and Jadaliyya's Bassam Haddad, while Inter Press Service's Emad Mekay joins us from Cairo. Where did you see the best reporting this week? It's Your Call with Rose Aguilar and you.

Paul Jay, a Canadian journalist and film director, and creator and CEO of The Real News.

Bassam Haddad, serves on the Editorial Committee of Middle East Report and is Co-Founder of Jadaliyya Ezine.
