Media Roundtable

On the next Your Call, it's our Friday Media Roundtable. This week, we'll have a conversation with the Washington Independent's Annie Lowrey, and Gary Rivlin, author of Broke, USA: From Pawnshops to Poverty, Inc. -- How the Working Poor Became Big Business. According to the Census, 44 million people in the U.S., or one in seven, lived in poverty last year. With so many people struggling to make ends meet and businesses making huge profits off low-income communities, why is there such marginal media coverage of the poor? It's Your Call, with Rose Aguilar and you.
