Your Call 060509 Media Roundtable

On the next Your Call, it's our Friday media roundtable -- the day we hold the media accountable for getting us the news we need. This week President Obama delivered his highly anticipated speech to the Muslim world, the Organization of American States reversed their 47-year-old decision to expel Cuba, and Dr. George Tiller was assassinated in his Wichita, Kansas church. We'll be joined by Egyptian journalist Hossam Hamalawy, New America Media's Marcelo Ballve, and's Tracy Clark-Flory. Send us an email at or join us live at 11 am. Where did you see the best reporting this week and where did the media fall short? It's Your Call with Rose Aguilar.
