Your Call 082809 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. We'll talk about the coverage of Teddy Kennedy's death, the release of a less redacted torture memo and Binyamin Netanyahu's visit trip to Europe. 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 Ben Temchine and you.
