Your Call 081508 Media Roundtable

On the next Your Call it's our Friday Media Roundtable when we sniff out the bias and applaud good work. This week Russia and Georgia went to war. What explains the dramatic difference in coverage of the fighting between American and Russian media? Were the facts in question, or did bias hide facts from both audiences? We'll speak with Pulitzer prize winner David Cay Johnston, Gail Chaddock of the Christian Science Monitor and independent reporter Tim Shorrock. Is unbiased reporting the same as reporting whose bias you agree with? It's Your Call.
