Your Call 052308 Media Roundtable

On the next Your Call it's our Friday Media Roundtable where we discuss how the news of the week was covered in the mainstream, alternative and international press. This week West Virginia and Oregon voted. Should a rally in Portland that drew a sixth of the city's population been a bigger story? Also this week, peace talks were simultaneously announced by Syria and Israel. We'll be joined by environment reporter Clare Cummings; Shmuel Rosner from Haaretz and Joe Garofoli of the San Francisco Chronicle. Where did you get the context you needed from this weeks news? It's Your Call with Ben Temchine and you.

Clare Cummings, an environmental lawyer and journalist who writes primarily about the environmental and political implications of what we eat and how it is grown and raised. She is the author of Uncertain Peril: Genetic Engineering and the Future of Seeds.

Shmuel Rosner is the chief U.S. correspondent for Haaretz, a center-left Israeli newspaper.

Joe Garofoli writes about media trends, politics and culture for the San Francisco Chronicle.
