Your Call: Yemen and the State of the Union
On the next Your Call, it’s our Friday media roundtable. This week, we’ll discuss coverage of President Obama’s State of the Union speech. He focused on a number of economic issues including tax reform, jobs and education. How does the media’s obsession with political partisanship shape coverage of domestic and foreign policy issues? Where are the facts about taxes and the economy? We will be joined by McClatchy’s Mark Seibel and investigative reporter David Cay Johnston. We will be also joined by Sana'a based independent journalist Ataif Al Wazir. What grabbed your attention in the media this week? It’s Your Call with Rose Aguilar and you.
