Your Call: US invasion of Iraq and the rise of ISIS

Apr 24, 2015

On the April 24th edition of  Your Call, it’s our Friday media roundtable. This week, we’ll discuss a new report detailing the origins of the so-called Islamic State. We’ll also talk about former New York Times reporter Judith Miller, who claims intelligence agencies are to blame for her discredited reporting on Iraq’s weapons of mass destruction. We’ll be joined by Der Spiegel’s Christoph Reuter, McClatchy’s Mark Seibel, and veteran journalist James Moore. Join the conversation on the next Your Call, with Rose Aguilar, and you.


Every week on Your Call's Friday Media Roundtable, we ask the journalists on our panel to recommend great reporting they've seen this week.

This week we spoke with:


David Cay Johnston, Pulitzer Prize winning investigative reporter, editor of the anthology “Divided: The Perils of Our Growing Inequality

Mark Seibel, chief of correspondents for McClatchy Newspapers

On the next Your Call, it’s our Friday media roundtable. This week, we’ll discuss coverage of President Obama’s State of the Union speech. He focused on a number of economic issues including tax reform, jobs and education. How does the media’s obsession with political partisanship shape coverage of domestic and foreign policy issues? Where are the facts about taxes and the economy? We will be joined by McClatchy’s Mark Seibel and investigative reporter David Cay Johnston. We will be also joined by Sana'a based independent journalist Ataif Al Wazir.
