Your Call 010909 Media Roundtable

On the next Your Call, it's our Friday media roundtable where we bring in reporters from the mainstream, alternative and international press to discuss the week in American media. This week we'll speak with investigative reporter AC Thompson from ProPublica about his 18-month-long investigation of vigilante shootings after Katrina. We'll also talk with Tim Redmond from the San Francisco Bay Guardian about the police shooting on BART and Sherine Tadros of Al Jazeera about covering the assault on Gaza. Where did you see the best reporting this week and where did it fall short? It's Your Call with Rose Aguilar and you.
