On the next Your Call, it’s our Friday media roundtable. This week, we’ll discuss coverage of President Obama’s historic visit to Cuba. How will US-Cuba relations change mainstream reporting on Cuba?

We’ll also talk about coverage of the AIPAC conference, the pro-Israel lobbying group, where nearly every presidential candidate pledged their unwavering support for Israel. Senator Bernie Sanders was the only candidate to decline the invitation to speak at the conference. Join the conversation, on the next Your Call, with Rose Aguilar and you.

Guests:

Eli Clifton, fellow at The Nation Institute who focuses on money in politics and US foreign policy

Roque Planas, editor of the Huffington Post Latino Voices section
