Chuck Todd & Rose Aguilar

  

As the new host of NBC's Sunday morning flagship public affairs show Meet the Press, Chuck Todd has one of the biggest platforms in US journalism. He has access to everyone from President Barack Obama to Vice President Dick Cheney. Before taking over the hosting job at Meet The Press, Todd served as NBC News Chief White House Correspondent for six years. Todd recently sat down with Your Call's Rose Aguilar to discuss poverty and climate change, the cozy relationship between the DC press corps and politicians, interviewing Dick Cheney about torture, the Obama administration's crackdown on whistleblowers, and asking follow-up questions.

Hear this Your Call special Thursday, March 5th at 11am.
