Your Call 050109 Media Roundtable

On the next Your Call it's our Friday media roundtable where we discuss how the news was covered in the American media. This week, the World Heath Organization said a swine flu pandemic was "imminent," President Obama marked his 100th day in office and Sen. Arlen Specter defected, pushing the Democratic majority closer to a filibuster-proof 60 votes. We'll be joined by Aaron Glantz, author of The War Comes Home, Amy Goodman of Democracy Now! and Will Bunch from the Philadelphia Daily News. Send us an email at or join us live at 11 a.m. Where did you see the best reporting this week and where did it fall short? It's Your Call with Rose Aguilar and you.
