Bad News: The Decline of Reporting, the Business of News and the Danger to Us All
Tom Fenton (au)
Our once-noble news media -- & network TV news in particular -- have abdicated their responsibility to the Amer. people, & endangered us in the process. After the fall of the Soviet Union, the network news was commandeered by its corp. parents as a cash cow. In-depth reporting on critical issues was replaced with saturation coverage of sensationalistic crime stories & simpleminded “news you can use.” In interviews with Dan Rather, Peter Jennings, & Tom Brokaw, Fenton exposes how even the anchors themselves believed they were outlandishly compensated -- while quality coverage was being slashed. “The news media must lose its entertainment-industry mind-set & reestablish its role as a keeper of the public trust.”
