Your Call: Media coverage of President Obama in Vietnam and Japan
On the May 27th edition of Your Call, it’s our media roundtable. This week we’ll discuss coverage of President Obama’s visits to Vietnam and Japan.
He is pushing the Trans-Pacific Partnership trade deal, which Public Citizen calls NAFTA on steroids. He is also making a historic visit to Hiroshima.
How are reporters covering this history? And why is it so hard for countries to apologize for past atrocities? It's Your Call with Rose Aguilar and you.
