Today on Your Call:Friday Media Roundtable


On today's Your Call, it’s our Friday media roundtable. This week, we’ll have a conversation about coverage of NSA's surveillance program. How are the media treating Glenn Greenwald, the Guardian columnist who broke the story? And what about Edward Snowden, the 29-year-old who leaked the story? We’ll also discuss coverage of the ongoing protests in Turkey. We’ll be joined by the Open America Project’s David Talbot, investigative journalist Tim Shorrock and freelance journalist Justin Vela. Where did you see the best reporting this week? It’s Your Call, with Rose Aguilar and you.
