On today’s Your Call, it’s our Friday media roundtable. This week, we’ll discuss media coverage of US Forest Service budget cuts as thousands of firefighters are battling the massive Rim Fire near Yosemite. The second round of cuts are scheduled to begin in October. Who’s covering this angle? We’ll also talk about the launch of Aljazeera America. We’ll be joined by Think Progress’ Katie Valentine, CJR’s David Cay Johnston and Murrow College’s Lawrence Pintak. Where did you see the best reporting this week? It's Your Call, with Rose Aguilar and you.
When she came into work this morning, Frank McCoppin kindergarten teacher Selina Cheung didn’t know whether she’d have a job next semester or not. Parent Siobhan Culhane hadn’t heard the news about Proposition 30 either.
On today’s Your Call, we’ll have a special two-hour live broadcast of Your Call from the City College of San Francisco. We’ll talk about the state of higher education – in the first hour, exploring the role public universities play in California ’s economy, and in the second hour focusing on the crisis at CCSF. Join the conversation in person at the Diego Rivera Theater on the CCSF campus, or tune in Monday at 10 am here on KALW, San Francisco.
