Media Mistrust

>> Saturday, June 30, 2012

People sense that the media--being progressively merged into bigger and bigger media--consider them a market more than an audience, and use sensationalism to hold and enlarge that market. Even while spellbound by coverage of O. J. Simpson, Ennis Cosby, Tonya Harding, JonBenet Ramsey, they know they're being manipulated by an increasingly tabloid media.
--Daniel Schorr, "Media Mistrust," September 21, 1997
