Your Call 031309 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 Iraqi journalist and shoe thrower Muntadher al-Zaidi was sentenced to three years in prison, Afghan president Hamid Karzai came to Washington and a candidate for a senior position in the state department was derailed by a whispering campaign that was protected by a wall of journalistic silence. We'll be joined by Anand Naidoo, anchor and correspondent for Al-Jazeera English; Glenn Greenwald, staff blogger for and Pratap Chatterjee, investigative journalist with Corpwatch. Where did you see the best reporting this week and where did it fall short? It's Your Call with Rose Aguilar and you.
