Hello media?!

I didn’t write this, but it is epitomizes the misgivings I have about TV media. At what point in the chain of command between the field reporters, AP feeds, and actual coverage does so much of the real story get lost? Who is calling the shots? How much influence do owners of media corporations have at the daily news level?

In any case, this article puts forth an interesting perspective on what the media chooses to report, especially tv journalists and what they ignore. I didn’t watch television this week, but from the small clips I caught on CNN.com and MSNBC.com, I could tell that a lot of folks were focused on Jesse Jackson’s unfortunate (but ultimately not that impactful) comments.
