Your Call: The legacy of Justice Antonin Scalia

Feb 19, 2016

  

On the February 19th edition of Your Call, it’s our Friday media roundtable. This week, we’ll discuss coverage of Justice Antonin Scalia’s death.

How are the media reporting on his legacy and influence on the Supreme Court’s major decisions affecting abortion,  voting rights, money in politics, and labor? We’ll also discuss the worsening humanitarian situation in Syria, as continued Russian bombings have created a new wave of refugees. Join the conversation, on the next Your Call, with Rose Aguilar, and you. 

 Guests: 

Scott Horton, contributing editor at Harper’s Magazine, and a lecturer at Columbia Law School. He is the author of Lords of Secrecy: The National Security Elite and America's Stealth Foreign Policy

Bob Egelko, legal affairs reporter for the San Francisco Chronicle

Borzou Daraghahi, Middle East correspondent for BuzzFeed News
