Friday Media Roundtable: The Guardian under fire, Syria war crimes, Mandela
On the next Your Call, it’s our Friday Media Roundtable. This week, we’ll discuss media coverage of the parliamentary questioning of Guardian editor-in-chief Alan Rusbridger. He’s accused of of helping terrorists by publicizing top secret information leaked by Edward Snowden. We’ll also discuss coverage of Syria. For the first time, the UN has accused President Ashar al-Assad of committing war crimes. We’ll be joined by the Washington Post's Liz Sly and Free Press’s Josh Stearns. Join the conversation on the next Your Call, with Rose Aguilar, and you.
