Media Roundtable

On the next Your Call, it's our Friday Media Roundtable. Harper's editor Scott Horton joins us to discuss his six-month investigation about three Guantanamo detainees who died in 2006. The U.S. government says they committed suicide. A former sergeant says they were tortured. Why is it getting so little coverage in the national media?

We'll also discuss the lack of coverage of the devastating storm that's left the Sioux Reservation in South Dakota without power, water, or heat. And we'll find out how reporters who have no choice but to cover Iran from outside the country are getting their stories. Where did you see the best reporting this week? It's Your Call with Rose Aguilar and you.

Scott Horton, Harper's editor
Farnaz Fassihi, Wall Street Journal's Middle East bureau chief
Scott Waltman, Aberdeen American News reporter
