Media Roundtable

On the next Your Call, it's our Friday Media Roundtable. This week, we'll discuss coverage of the federal budget and President Obama's plan to reduce the deficit. What did you learn from the media's extensive coverage? We'll also discuss coverage of protests in Afghanistan. We'll be joined by Tax Notes' David Cay Johnston, McClatchy's David Lightman and independent journalist Anna Badkhen, who is just back from Afghanistan. Where did you see the best reporting this week? It's Your Call with Rose Aguilar and you.

Anna Badkhen has covered wars in Afghanistan, Somalia, Israel and the Palestinian territories, Chechnya and Kashmir and she has come back from 5 weeks of reporting in Northern Afghanistan.

David Cay Johnston, a Tax Analysts columnist and professor of tax, property and regulatory law of the ancient world at Syracuse University College of Law and Whitman School of Management.
