Your Call: U.S. bombing of MSF hospital in Kunduz; Supreme Court cases to watch

Oct 9, 2015

On the Oct 9th edition of Your Call, it’s our Friday media roundtable. This week, we’ll discuss coverage of US air strikes on Doctors without Borders’ hospital in Afghanistan, which killed 22 people. The organization has accused the US government of committing war crimes. How are the media framing the deadly attack? We’ll also discuss coverage of the Supreme Court’s new session. This term’s decisions will affect several crucial issues, including affirmative action, abortion, voting, and unions.  Join the conversation on the next Your Call, with Rose Aguilar and you.
