See What Matters in the Corporate Media
If Couric and the other "pretty" newscasters would pay as much attention to research and context as they do to their hair and "cook factor" the Corporate News might become worth watching. But Corporate Media doesn't want Americans to really know what's going on....if we did we would not tolerate the government give aways to the Corporate media and their corporate crony advertisers....And the Corporate Media might have to start "paying" for their use of "our publicly owned airwaves" by giving candidates running for office free air time in blocks of 15 to 30 minutes which would eliminate the sound bites and the billions of dollars that the corporations obtain every election cycle.
In the meantime, watch a real journalist--Amy Goodman--at Democracynow.org and see what news can and should be.
