Your Call 072409 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 a budget deal was struck in Sacramento, the F-22 was killed and health care reform teetered in DC. We'll be joined by the LA Times' Tracy Wilkinson in Mexico City, Tim Redmond of the San Francisco Bay Guardian and Ricardo Sandoval from the Sacramento Bee. 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.
