Infosnacking at Frontline...

I played portions of Part III of Frontline's News Wars series in both my Media and American Politics and American Government courses (in which the topic for the week is the media in politics).

The segments I played today included one featuring Ted Koppel at his forthright best bemoaning the demise of journalistic standards at the network news divisions. A bitter Dan Rather is also in the mix, along with Katie Couric, bloggers and all sorts of folks. And that was all found in just four segments....
