Media Roundtable

On the next Your Call, it's our Friday Media Roundtable. This week, we'll discuss coverage of the government shutdown in Minnesota and massive budget cuts in forty-six states. How are journalists covering these cuts? We'll also speak about the phone-hacking scandal engulfing Rupert Murdock's News of the World in the UK. We'll be joined by Minnesota Independent's Sam Lane, Ventura County Star's Timm Herdt and Aljazeera's Richard Gizbert. Where did you see the best reporting this week? Join us live at 10 or send us an email at It's Your Call, with Rose Aguilar and you.
