Your Call: Media and the Pope's U.S. Visit; attacks on Planned Parenthood
On the September 25th edition of Your Call, it’s our Friday media roundtable. Pope Francis and Chinese President Xi Jinping are both in the United States this week and media coverage has been extensive.
Many outlets carried the Pope’s speech to Congress in which he called for the abolition of the death penalty and addressed poverty and climate change. We’ll also discuss the yearlong investigating into Catholic Church’s child abuse scandal, and Republicans threatening to shut down the government over federal funding for Planned Parenthood. What stood out for you in the media this week? It’s Your Call, with Rose Aguilar and you.
