On this edition of Your Call’s media roundtable, we’ll discuss coverage of the historic protests in Puerto Rico which forced Governor Ricardo Rosselló to resign. They began after the publication of shocking text messages between the governor and his inner circle.

We'll also talk about Robert Mueller’s testimony to two different House committees regarding Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election and the obstruction of justice case against Donald Trump.

Guests:

Ed Morales, freelance journalist and author of Latinx: The New Force in American Politics and Culture, and the forthcoming Fantasy Island: Colonialism, Exploitation and the Betrayal of Puerto Rico
