On today's Your Call, it’s our Friday media roundtable. This week we’ll discuss media coverage of Amazon's CEO, Jeff Bezos buying the Washington Post. He is not the first billionaire adding media outfits to his portfolio. What does the trend mean for the future of journalism? We’ll also talk about US Russia relations after Edward Snowden was granted asylum. We’ll be joined by the Seattle Times’ Jay Greene, the Nations’ John Nichols and Christian Science Monitor’s Fred Weir. Join the conversation on the next Your Call, with Rose Aguilar and you.
