Inside PR 464: Is the news media too weakened to do its job?
By Joseph Thornley
We've entered a new era, a whole new world, an alternate universe. And Gini Dietrich, Martin Waxman and Joseph Thornley focus this entire episode on the implications of the approach to media relations (and truth) being taken by the New President and the ability of today's weakened news media to play their important counterbalance role in relation to Power. Sources that we found useful for this: Liz Spayd, Public Editor of the New York Times, critiquing the Times' coverage (or failure to cover), Trump, Russia, and the News Story that Wasn't Susan Delacourt's recounting on the Brief Remarks podcast about how the Canadian Parliamentary Press Gallery survived the Stephen Harper government.
