Your Call: Big money & Rahm Emanuel; Saudi Arabia & the Clinton Foundation
On the April 10th edition of Your Call, it’s our Friday media roundtable. This week, we’ll discuss coverage of Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s second term victory, his privatization deals, and the role of big money in politics.
