On today's Your Call, it’s our Friday media roundtable. This week, we’ll discuss media coverage of the Justice Department’s decision  not to prosecute Goldman Sachs in a financial fraud probe. We’ll also talk about the trial of the Russian protest rock band, Pussy Riot and freedom of expression in Russia . We’ll be joined by Reuters’ Rob Cox, McClathchy’s Kevin Hall and independent journalist Masha Gessen. Join us at 10 or email feedback@yourcallradio.org. Where did you see the best reporting this week?

A few words here for all my fellow Muppets, referring to Greg Smith, formerly of Goldman Sachs, who wrote an op-ed in the New York Times announcing he's out  of there due to his company’s extreme moral bankruptcy. According to Smith, associates are encouraged to rip off their own billion-dollar clients and regularly disparage them as Muppets.
