Your Call 032108 The Iraq War Five Years On- Media Roundtable

On the next Your Call, it's our Friday Media Roundtable. This week, we're focusing on the disappearing coverage of Iraq. In 2002, when most mainstream newspaper reporters failed to question the Bush administration's claims about weapons of mass destruction, Knight Ridder proclaimed "Troubling questions over justification for war in Iraq." Knight Ridder reporter Jonathan Landay joins us to discuss the methods he used to get the story right the first time. We'll also be joined by the Boston Globe's Anna Badkhen. Some of the few major newspaper reporters to cover Winter Soldier, she's also reported from Iraq. Why has Iraq disappeared? It's Your Call with Rose Aguilar and you.

Anna Badkhen, correspondent for the Boston Globe

Jonathan S. Landay, National Security and Intelligence correspondent with McClatchy

Zuhair Jezairy, editor in chief of the independent news agency Aswat al-Iraq
