Your Call 120707 Friday Media Roundtable

On the next Your Call it's our Friday Media Roundtable. This week President Bush’s dire warnings about an Iranian nuclear holocaust were knee-capped by his own intelligence agencies. While American media outlets quoted the president’s rationalizations, who did middle east reporters go to. We’ll speak with NPR reporter Deb Amos in Syria. We’ll also talk with the Boston Globe’s Anna Badkhen about the Russian elections and religion in political reporting with an editor of Beliefnet. What was your story of the week? It's Your Call with Rose Aguilar and you.

Deb Amos, covers Iraq for NPR News

Anna Badkhen, Staff writer for the Boston Globe. Before joining the Globe she was a freelance foreign correspondent with a particular focus on Russia.

Joel Schalit, Independent writer and former editor of both Punk Planet and Tikkun. Joel is finishing up a book about Israel and Palestine called Israel vs. Utopia.
