Your Call 073109 Media Roundtable

On the next Your Call, it's our Friday Media Roundtable. This week, President Obama had a beer with Professor Gates and Officer Crowley, Blue Dog Democrats agreed to sign on to a watered down healthcare bill in the House, progressive Democrats rejected that compromise, and American diplomats bounced between Jerusalem, Damascus, Baghdad, and Cairo. We'll be joined by's Bill Scher, the Nation's Barbara Corssette, and the San Francisco Chronicle's Andrew Ross. Where did you see the best reporting this week and where did the media fall short? It's Your Call with Rose Aguilar and you.

Bill Scher, Online editor for Campaign for America's Future, executive editor of, and author of "Wait! Don't Move To Canada!: A Stay-and-Fight Strategy to Win Back America"

Barbara Crossette, UN correspondent for the Nation Magazine, former foreign correspondent for The New York Times and their bureau chief at the United Nations from 1994 to 2001
