On today's Your Call, it's our Friday media roundtable. This week, we'll discuss coverage of the budget and tax standoff between Republicans and President Obama. We’ll ask Decode DC’s Andrea Seabrook and the Huffington Post’s Michael McAuliff: Who’s doing reporting that takes us beyond the official narratives? Mexico has a new President from an old party – the PRI’s Enrique Pena Nieto – we’ll hear from NPR’s Carrie Kahn about the nationwide protests following his inauguration. It's Your Call, with Holly Kernan, and you.
It's ugly out there, people! As expected, following the holiday recess, we're seeing a lot of bluster and bombast building up on the beltway and that has managed to slow progress on every budget deal ramp to a virtual crawl. Three or four 18-wheelers full of election day rancor have overturned. And as you might have imagined, rubber-necking has resulted in not so tender fender benders.
