Friday media roundtable: Keystone XL & South Africa's striking miners


On today’s Your Call, it’s our Friday media roundtable. This week, we’ll discuss media coverage of the Farm Bill, which has passed the House and Senate. We’ll also discuss coverage of the Keystone XL pipeline. Hundreds of protests took place this week. The administration has 90 days to make a final decision. And we’ll look at coverage of South African Platinum Miners striking for a living wage. Where did you see the best reporting this week? Join the conversation on the next Your Call, with Rose Aguilar and you.
