politics and culture: May 2005 Archives

the medium, the message

| | Comments (1)

My husband is in media - radio to be specific. He is not on the 'talent' end (though I find him to be very talented!) - he is in tech support (so-to speak). He and I have had several conversations about techniques that various media use to put forth a point of view, while seeming to be 'fair and balanced'. I keep hoping that he will write a longer post on the topic, but he is a much more careful writer than I am, and won't put something out there until he is sure that he has it right. It's a virtue, I think, but it isn't mine. Anyhow, this newspaper article is about the recent announcement by the Pontificator (referenced below). Read it through - and then think about how that last paragraph might affect the casual reader.
