Your Call: Stock market crash: From Shanghai to NY
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. How are the media reporting on the underlying reasons for the meltdown? And how accurately does the stock market reflect the current state of the US economy? 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.
