Sleaze Journalism

Program #SCHS001. Recorded in New York, NY on March 03, 1999.

The wave of corporate media mergers has changed the business of news-gathering. Investigative journalism, which takes time and money, is largely replaced by McNews. The public is titillated with coverage of crime and sex scandals. There are endless features about the lives of rich and famous Hollywood celebrities and sports stars.

Recorded at NYU.
