While the majority of the world’s Christians celebrate Christmas on December 25th, a number of Orthodox sects follow an older-than-Gregorian calendar. They celebrate every year on January 7th. 

On the December 5th, 2014 edition of Your Call, it’s our Friday media roundtable. This week, we’ll talk about news coverage of protest -- from Ferguson to New York, from Egypt to Hong Kong. We'll be joined Jadaliyya’s Adel Iskander in Cairo, long-time China reporter Mary Kay Magistad and Miami Herald columnist Leonard Pitts.  Join us on the next Your Call, with Matt Martin and you.
