Your Call 062008 Media Roundtable

On the next Your Call it's our Friday Media Roundtable where we discuss how the news of the week was covered. This week, the New York Times ran the headline, "Sense of Calm as Gay Couples Wed in California." While it would be easy to criticize the Times and say the true emotion was joy, did this headline and overall coverage of the nuptials capture the true spirit of the week? We'll also talk about coverage of Tim Russert's death and the success of a local newspaper unionization drive. On the next Your Call with Sandip Roy and you.
