Your Call: Media and the legacy of oil spills
On the May 20th edition of Your Call, it’s our Friday Media Roundtable. This week, we’ll discuss coverage of President Obama’s decision to open the Arctic to oil and gas drilling. This week, Seattle activists used their kayaks to stop Shell from docking at the port and then continuing on to the Arctic. We’ll also discuss the latest oil spill in Santa Barbara, the possibilities of a spill in the Arctic and the environmental impact of the Deepwater Horizon oil spill. We’ll be joined by Huffington Post’s Kate Sheppard and investigative journalist Antonia Juhasz. Where did you see the best reporting this week? Join the conversation on the next Your Call with Rose Aguilar and you.
