On today's Your Call, it’s our Friday media roundtable. This week, we’ll have a conversation about media coverage of laws restricting women’s reproductive rights in Missouri and other states across the country. We’ll also talk about the mining strikes in South Africa after police shot and killed 44 strikers. We’ll be joined by RH Reality Check’s Jodi Jacobson, St. Louis Beacon Jo Mannies and Guardian’s David Smith joins us from Johannesburg. Where did you see the best reporting this week? It’s Your Call, with Rose Aguilar and you.
