Your Call: The role of media in elections

2016election_0.jpg

On the February 12th edition of Your Call, it’s our Friday media roundtable. This week, we’ll discuss the New Hampshire primary and Bernie Sanders' big win among nearly every demographic, including women and young voters. How is the post- New Hampshire analysis setting the tone for election coverage? 

We’ll also talk about the Pope’s historic visit to some of Mexico’s most troubled areas. He’s expected to shine a light on the deadly drug war and the plight of immigrants. Join the conversation, on the next Your Call, with Rose Aguilar and you. 

Guests:

Thomas Frank, regular contributor to Salon and author of Liberal: Or, What Ever Happened to the Party of the People? 

Lee Fang, investigative reporter with the Intercept

Alfredo Corchado, Mexico City bureau chief of The Dallas Morning News
