Media Roundtable

On the next Your Call, it's our Friday Media Roundtable. This week, we continue discussing coverage of the oil disaster in the Gulf of Mexico as the BP CEO goes to Washington. We'll also discuss coverage of Afghanistan and the timing of NY Times' reporting of nearly one trillion dollars of untapped minerals in that country. We'll be joined by Wall Street Journal's Stephen Power, Yahoo's John Cook and freelance journalist Anna Badken. She is just back from Afghanistan. Where did you see the best reporting this week? Join us live at 11 or send us an email at It's Your Call, with Rose Aguilar and you.
