Your Call 050208 Media Roundtable

On the next Your Call, it's our Media Roundtable. The Reverend Jeremiah Wright continues to dominate headlines. Is the coverage justified? The American Prospect's Sarah Posner joins us to discuss religion coverage in general. And the Free Press's Harvey Wasserman will talk about coverage of the Supreme Court's decision to uphold a law requiring citizens to show an ID card before voting. We'll also talk about the coverage of Iraq. Where did you see solid reporting? It's Your Call, with Rose Aguilar and you.

Dahr Jamail, an independent journalist and the author of Beyond the Green Zone: Dispatches from an Unembedded Journalist in Occupied Iraq

Sarah Posner has covered the religious right for The American Prospect, The Gadflyer, and AlterNet. Her new book is God's Profits: Faith, Fraud, and the Republican Crusade for Values Voters

Harvey Wasserman, Senior Editor of Free Press
