On the March 4th edition of  Your Call, it's our Friday media roundtable. This week, we'll discuss coverage of the Super Tuesday primaries.

After declaring the front runners in the Democratic and Republican parties, the talk turned to general election, and deepening crisis in the Republican Party. Who is going beyond the sound bites to hold candidates accountable. Who is providing context, and substance about candidates, their history, and policies? Join the conversation, on the next Your Call, with Mark Hertsgaard and you.

Guests:

David Cay Johnston, Pulitzer-prize winning journalist, Distinguished Visiting Lecturer at Syracuse University, and editor of the new anthology “Divided: The Perils of Our Growing Inequality.”
