Write What We Say, Not What We Do

Program #MCCR006. Recorded in Asheville, NC on May 07, 2002.

Seems like journalist are letting the big stories fall through the cracks. Maybe they should start with simpler questions. How about who really won the 2000 Presidential election? Or what about the ties between President Bush and Enron? Cheney and Haliburton? Journalists, columnists, and pundits report what politicians and corporate moguls say...not what they do. Period. The reporter has simply become the bridge between politician and print. Lost is the deep digging of investigative journalism that exposes stories people in power don't talk about...stories essential for an informed democracy.

Speaker(s):
