  On this week's media roundtable, we’ll discuss ongoing coverage of Russia’s possible intervention in the US presidential election. We’ll also look at ExxonMobil CEO Rex Tillerson and his transition from the boardroom to the State Department.

Most of the attention has been on his relationship with Russia, but the company has also done business in more than 23 countries, including Chad, Saudi Arabia and Iraqi Kurdistan. Join us live at 10 am, on the next Your Call, with Rose Aguilar and you.
