On the August 28th edition of Call,  it’s our Friday media roundtable. This week, we’ll discuss coverage of China’s economic slowdown and the US market crash, which sent shockwaves around the globe.

We’ll be joined by McClatchy’s Kevin Hall and Salon’s David Dayen. Join the conversation on the next Your Call, with Matt Martin and you.

Guests:
