On the July 10th edition of Your Call, it’s our Friday media roundtable.  This week, we’ll discuss coverage of the economic crisis in Greece. Last Sunday, Greek voters flatly rejected austerity measures. All eyes are now focused on negotiations between Greece and its creditors. How are the media covering the human cost of austerity? We’ll be joined by McClatchy’s Kevin Hall, the Globe and Mail’s Eric Rugely and independent journalist Yiannis Baboulias. Join the conversation on the next Your Call, with Rose Aguilar and you.

Guests:

Yiannis Baboulias, journalist, writer and founding member of Precarious Europe.

Eric Reguly, European economics and business correspondent for The Globe and Mail

Kevin Hall, chief economics correspondent for McClatchy Newspapers
