Media Whores: Protests bad for business

Where is Edward R. Murrow when we need him most?

Coming from the Broadcast and Cable magazine, a publication found on the desk of every news director, comes this article.

"The issue for the local stations—and it comes through loud and clear—is that, if they take a traditional approach to their coverage they are making a big mistake."

That “traditional” approach is fair and balanced coverage. This is why when 200,000 people marched in New York, it was nothing more than an “also happening” on MSNBC.

News organizations have a responsibility report the news, whether the viewers, or the administration likes it or not.
It really is time to take back the media.
