This week, we’ll discuss media coverage of state sanctioned violence against the Rohingya Muslim minority in Myanmar. More than 20,000 people have fled Myanmar for Bangladesh.

We'll also talk about the Republican plan to dismantle the Affordable Care Act. How are reporters covering Obamacare? And given that the Republicans have no alternatives, how are the media holding them accountable? Join us live at 10 am, on the next Your Call, with Rose Aguilar and you.

Guests:

Paul Mooney, award winning freelance journalist

Will Bunch, senior writer for the Philadelphia Daily News, and author of its popular blog Attytood

Trudy Lieberman, longtime health journalist, contributing editor to the Columbia Journalism Review, and  blogger for Health News Review
