Thanks to Gerald Baron’s very high praise for the recently published David Westin (Former Head of ABC News) memoir, Exit Interview, I’ve downloaded the book and have started reading it. So far, I’m really enjoying it. Gerald says:
If you are as interested as I am in how news is done and how it helps form the opinions of citizens. About how reputations are won or lost in this environment. About how our society builds or loses trust when everyone is competing for their attention. About an over-saturated information environment where the only proven way to break through is through gut-level emotion—fear, disgust, disdain, outrage. Then you will want to read this book.
Sounds like it might be right up our collective alley. I have plans to post a bit on some of the things I learn and hope you will give feedback.
