Your Call: Media coverage of California's water crisis


On the July 17th edition of Your Call, it’s our Friday media roundtable. This week, we’ll discuss media coverage of California’s water crisis.

As the state continues to grapple with its historic drought, how seriously are the media framing the issue and possible solutions? What angles are they taking? We’ll be joined by Reveal’s Nathan Halverson and Water Deeply’s managing editor Matt Weiser. Where are you seeing or hearing the best reporting on California’s water crisis? Join the conversation on the next Your Call, with Rose Aguilar and you.
