What constitutes unbiased information vs. opinion disguised as facts? Why and how has what we watch become diluted, dramatized, and polarized? How have we arrived at this point? What was lost? What was gained? Through personal anecdotes, and a touch of humor, rooted in over 35 years of experience and laser-focused analysis, the author demonstrates how the television news landscape has changed and what this means for news gathering and reporting as well as for those watching at home. While the fringes on the left and the right expand, the unwavering center still delivers straightforward unbiased news, albeit packaged differently. The responsibility of discerning what we are taking in relies on us, the consumers: this book helps guide us to understand what we are being fed every day.
