Your Call 012309 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 Moises Naim, editor of Foreign Policy about the global coverage of the inauguration. We'll also speak with Jamal Dajani from Mosaic on LinkTV who is just back from two weeks covering the assault on Gaza. What else was going on while we watched the inaguration? Where did you see the best reporting this week and where did it fall short? It's Your Call with Rose Aguilar and you.
