Your Call 032808 Media Roundtable

On the next Your Call it's our Friday Media Roundtable where we analyze the news and the way it was delivered. This week violence in Iraq returned to front pages after a months-long hiatus. As American news media awaken to the ongoing war between Sunni and Shia and the deepening split within Shia Iraqis, which reporters told it like it was and who simply sold the surge? We'll also be talking with NPR economics reporter Adam Davidson about explaining the important but dense story of the economic crisis. What was the best reported story you heard this week? It's Your Call with Rose Aguilar and you.
