  On the This edition of Call’s media roundtable, we’ll discuss coverage of the Coronavirus. The virus has killed at least 3,000 people and has now infected more than 100,000 worldwide. Nurses in the United States say hospitals are woefully unprepared. How are the media covering this outbreak?

We’ll also talk about the fallout from Super Tuesday. Joe Biden won 10 states including Texas, Bernie Sanders won four states, including delegate rich California, and Elizabeth Warren has dropped out. She has yet to endorse. We’ll discuss media coverage.
