Your Call 100308 Media Roundtable

On the next Your Call, it's our Friday Media Roundtable. This week, Senator Joe Biden and Governor Sarah Palin squared off in the only Vice Presidential debate of the campaign. Did the coverage you saw focus on issues that actually matter to you? What do you think of the coverage of the few interviews Palin actually did this week? We'll also discuss coverage of the bailout bill and the ongoing economic crisis. Did you get the context you needed to make sense of the week's news? It's Your Call with me, Rose Aguilar and you.

Guest: Peter Waldman in San Francisco
Senior writer at Conde Nast Portfolio;

David Folkenflik in New York

Host of "Blue State of Mind" on KUDO 1080AM in Anchorage

Special Request: Do you have friends in swing states?

If you have relatives or friends in the states that are toss-ups in this election, we want to know what they think. Next Wednesday, after the second debate between Barack Obama and John McCain, we'd love to hear from your swing state friends and relations. So if you know people in Nevada, Colorado, Minnesota, Indiana, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Virginia, North Carolina and Florida who'd give their reaction to the debate drop us an e-mail at so we can either get them on the show, or have you on to let us know what they had to say when you checked in with them.
