Your Call 100209 Media Roundtable

On the next Your Call, it's our Friday Media Roundtable. This week the Senate Finance Committee voted down plans for a public option in health care. The White House announced it might not be able to close Guantanamo prison by January, and there's a renewed focus on the Iranian nuclear program. We'll be joined by Andreas Zumach, who covers the UN for the German daily Die Tagezeitung, Huffington Post's Ryan Grim, and ProPublica's Dafna Linzer. Where did you see the best reporting this week and where did journalists fall short? It's Your Call with Sandip Roy and you.

Ryan Grim, senior congressional correspondent for the Huffington Post

Dafna Linzer, senior reporter with ProPublica

Andreas Zumach, a journalist reporting on the United Nations in Geneva, for the German newspaper "Die tageszeitung" (taz)
