Today on Your Call: Friday Media Roundtable

Apr 6, 2012

On today's Your Call, it’s our Friday media roundtable. This week, we’ll discuss coverage of the nationwide crackdown and arrest of over 3000 undocumented immigrants, which has received little media scrutiny. We’ll also talk about the Raid on Oaksterdam in Oakland, and the UN pressuring Syria and the opposition to end all violence by April 12. We’ll be joined by independent journalist Valeria Fernandez, freelance journalist David Downs, and The Financial Times’ Borzou Daraghahi joins us from Beirut. What story grabbed your attention this week? It’s Your Call, with Rose Aguilar and you.
