Your Call 113007 Media Roundtable

On the next Your Call it's our Friday Media Roundtable. While all eyes were on Annapolis, what else happened in the world you should know about? Tensions continued to mount on the Turkey-Iraq border. We'll speak with Aliza Marcus there. The economy staggered along and we'll talk with Peter Waldman about the health of economics coverage. We'll also speak with Telemundo political analyst Carlos Rajo about news south of the border. It's Your Call, with me, Sandip Roy, and you.
