Your Call: Media coverage of race and racism
On the July 15th edition of Your Call, it’s our Friday media roundtable. This week, we’ll discuss coverage of the widespread protests against the killing of black men by police.
We’ll also talk about the militarization of local law enforcement in the US, and the use of a bomb robot to kill Micah Johnson, the Army Reservist who shot and killed five police officers and wounded seven others in Dallas. Join the conversation, on the next Your Call, with Rose Aguilar and you.
