The More You Watch the Less You Know

Program #SCHD001. Recorded in Taos, NM on April 18, 1998.

The news media provide less and less information and more and more "infotainment" and a steady diet of the trial of the century, sexcapade of the year and multiple car crash of the week. It is fluff over matter. And it is all served up by the "prettiest hair on the air," as Schechter calls the anchors.  Interviewed by David Barsamian.
