Today on Your Call: Friday Media Roundtable - Protesting NATO

On the next Your Call, it’s our Friday media roundtable. This week, we’ll discuss coverage of the NATO Summit and protests. Much of the focus was on the future of Afghanistan. On Sunday, 50 veterans threw their medals toward the summit, saying no amount of medals or flags can cover the amount of human suffering caused by the occupation. We’ll be joined by Truthout’s Yana Kunichoff, The Indypendent’s Arun Gupta, and the Guardian’s Emma Graham-Harrison. Where did you see the best reporting this week? It’s Your Call, with Rose Aguilar and you.

Guests:

Emma Graham-Harrison, Afghanistan correspondent for the Guardian newspaper

Yana Kunichoff, assistant editor for Truthout.org and reporter with The Chicago Reporter

Arun Gupta, founding editor of The Indypendent newspaper and co-founder of Occupy the Wall Street Journal
