Today on Your Call: Friday Media Roundtable

Jul 12, 2012

On today's Your Call, it’s our Friday Media Roundtable. This week, we’ll discuss coverage of the millions of dollars being raised and spent on the presidential campaign. How are political ads being covered? We’ll also discuss coverage of the ongoing protests in Sudan. We’ll be joined by Propublica’s Justin Elliot, Politico’s  Dave Levinthal and  Bloomberg’s Africa correspondent Salma Elwardany joins us from Cairo. She was just kicked out of Sudan. Where did you see the best reporting this week? It’s Your Call, with Rose Aguilar and you.
