Supreme Court nominee John Roberts has certainly
passed the media confirmation process, with most of
the coverage quite favorable
to Bush’s nominee for chief justice. With all that
praise, what are we
missing? Elliot Mincberg of People for the American
Way will join us to answer
that question. Also this week: Though Iraq news has
been largely pushed off
front-pages, the war obviously still grinds on. And
opinion-shaping media in the
U.S.-pundits and editorial page writers-are mostly
ignoring increasing
calls for withdrawing the troops. But what do Iraqis
think about ending the
occupation of their country? David Enders will join
us to talk about
one aspect of the Iraq debate that gets next to no
media attention.
