On this edition of Your Call’s Media Roundtable, award winning journalist Eric Reguly discusses his new book, Ghosts of War: Chasing My Father's Legend Through Vietnam. He chronicles his father Robert Reguly’s first-hand look at the brutality of the US war in Vietnam and how journalists shaped public opinion.

Robert Reguly was an acclaimed Canadian investigative reporter and a fearless war correspondent. What is the role of the media in times of war and how has coverage changed since Vietnam?

We'll also discuss the human cost of Russia's invasion of Ukraine. Russia's bombardment has caused civilian casualties and has forced millions to flee their homes seeking safety in neighboring countries. What is Vladimir Putin's endgame?

Guest:

Eric Reguly, European bureau chief for The Globe and Mail and author of Ghosts of War: Chasing My Father's Legend Through Vietnam
