Media Roundtable: The key players in the Middle East conflicts & US policy in the region
On this week’s weekly media roundtable, we’ll discuss coverage of Saudi Arabia -- its ties with the US, its tensions with Iran, and its war in Yemen -- with veteran FRONTLINE correspondent and producer Martin Smith. We will also talk with the Guardian’s Martin Chulov about developments in Syria, including divisions in the Trump Administration over the President's call to pull American troops out "very soon."
