Your Call 061909 Media RoundTable

On the next Your Call it's our Friday media roundtable, where we discuss how the news of the week was covered. This week we ask what's left of the news media in California that informs and engages the people of the state? What are the new initiatives that should give us hope? How is California's ongoing budget crisis being covered? And how do we support real journalism in California? Who's got it wrong, and who's getting it right?

We'll be joined by Louis Freedberg, Director of the Center for Investigative Reporting's California Project, Jerry Roberts of CalBuzz-dot-com and Steve Harmon of the Contra Costa Times.

It's Your Call with Rose Aguilar and you.
