Your Call 061308 Media Roundtable

On the next Your Call, it is our Friday Media Roundtable where we call the nation's media to account for the way the news of the week was covered. This week, Bush Administration efforts to ram through a status of forces agreement with the Iraqi government foundered over disagreements about independent contractors and permanent bases. Articles of impeachment were read out on the floor of Congress and a Senate effort to regulate CO2 emissions fell victim to the 75th Republican filibuster this session. Where did you get the context to understand these events? It's Your Call with Rose Aguilar and you.
