Today on Your Call: How can you fight back against corporate cons?


On today's Your Call, it's our Friday media roundtable. This week, we'll have a conversation with Pulitzer Prize winning investigative journalist David Cay Johnston about his latest book, The Fine Print: How Big Companies Use 'Plain English' to Rob You Blind. He notes, "No other modern country gives corporations the unfettered power found in America to gouge cus­tomers, shortchange workers, and erect barriers to fair play.” Join the conversation and call in with your questions on Your Call, with Rose Aguilar and you.

Guests:

David Cay Johnston, columnist for Tax Analysts and the Columbia Journalism Review

Justin Elliot, reporter with ProPublica, covering politics with a focus on money and influence
