Your Call 081409 Friday Media Roundtable

On the next Your Call it's our Friday Media Roundtable where we hold American media accountable for getting us the news we need. This week the Secretary of State traveled to seven African countries, the Congressional Budget Office said the deficit would be four times higher than it had ever been before and Sarah Palin said if health reform passed, the government could decide to kill the old and disabled. We'll be joined by John Wasik from Bloomberg and Franc Contreras, freelance reporter in Mexico City.

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.
