Friday Media Roundtable: A new Pope & great investigative reporting


On today's Your Call, it’s our Friday media roundtable. This week, we’ll have a conversation about the wall to wall media coverage of the newly elected Pope Francis. What stood out for you? We’ll also talk to investigative journalists in Northern California who broke stories about rising pension costs in Sonoma County and millions of dollars in “hidden assets” in the state parks system as the state was preparing to close 70 parks. Where did you see the best reporting this week? It’s Your Call, with Rose Aguilar and you.

Guests:

Matt Weiser, an environmental reporter with the Sacramento Bee

Jennifer Gollan,  a reporter covering regional politics and government oversight for The Bay Citizen.

Mark Seibel, Chief of Correspondents for McClatchy Newspapers
