Your Call: India's free speech debate; presidential primaries

Feb 25, 2016

On the February 26th edition of Your Call, it’s our Friday media roundtable. This week, we’ll have a conversation about media coverage of the presidential primaries. With the presidential elections in full swing, how are the media scrutinizing the candidates’ records on major issues? We’ll also discuss the heated debate over freedom of speech in India, following the arrest of several students over the demonstrations at one of India’s most prestigious universities. Join the conversation, on the next Your Call, with Rose Aguilar and you.
