Media Roundtable: The Humanitarian Crisis In Idlib & The Rise And Reign Of Jeff Bezos

Syrian civilians flee from Idlib in rain toward the north to find safety inside Syria near the border with Turkey,

On the next Your Call’s Media Roundtable, we’ll discuss coverage of the unfolding humanitarian catastrophe in Syria's Idlib province. Relentless bombing by Syria and Russia has forced nearly 900,000 people to flee their homes since December.

We will also talk about FRONTLINE’s new documentary, Amazon Empire: The Rise and Reign of Jeff Bezos. The yearlong investigation examines Jeff Bezos’ ascent to power and the ethical questions surrounding data collection and worker safety.
