Your Call: Why do journalists fall in love with some popular movements, and turn against others?

On the December 5th, 2014 edition of Your Call, it’s our Friday media roundtable. This week, we’ll talk about news coverage of protest -- from Ferguson to New York, from Egypt to Hong Kong. We'll be joined Jadaliyya’s Adel Iskander in Cairo, long-time China reporter Mary Kay Magistad and Miami Herald columnist Leonard Pitts.  Join us on the next Your Call, with Matt Martin and you.

Adel Islander, assistant professor of Global Communication at Simon Fraser University in Vancouver, and a co-editor of Jadaliyya web magazine.

MaryKay Magistad, former East Asia correspondent for PRI/BBC's The World, and former China & SE Asia correspondent for NPR
