Your Call 022208 Media Roundtable

On the next Your Call, it's our Friday Media Roundtable. This week President Bush made what is likely to be his final visit to Africa. But who went beyond the rhetoric and photo-ops? We'll speak with the Economist Magazines Africa Correspondent Jonathan Ledgard about what was missing from the front pages. Editor and Publisher's Greg Mitchell will talk about coverage of Iraq and the Texas Observer's Melissa Del Bosque joins us to discuss her latest piece about the border wall. Where did you see solid reporting this week? It's Your Call with Rose Aguilar.
