Abstract:

Most people rely on television newscasts to keep them informed. Yet, a recent Gallup poll says that only 21 percent of Americans rated television media as "very or mostly honest." Faced with declining ratings, increased competition, and intensified attention to the bottom line, television news organizations have been criticized for turning daily newscasts into "info-tainment." This program profiles the history of the electronic media, reveals its biases and tendencies toward sensationalism and exploitation, and highlights the challenges facing networks and local stations in the current, sensation-seeking culture.
