On this edition of Your Call’s media roundtable, we mark the 17th anniversary of the US-led invasion of Afghanistan. According to the UN, more than 10,000 civilians were killed or injured in 2017, and the number is expected to be even higher this year. What’s in store for the future of the war torn country?
We’ll also discuss media coverage of Judge Brett Kavanaugh's nomination, the sexual assault allegations, and the future of the Supreme Court.
