More on the blending between News and Entertainment
Interesting AP article here, carried on CNN. Looks like the AP is willing to take the major TV networks to task (ABC, NBC and CBS were all criticize), and CNN is willing to carry the story. Is the news media finally going to start checking itself? Not that I want some sort of gloves-off, all-out slugfest (well, maybe I do, now that I think of it), but it would be nice for news outlets to call each other out for misrepresenting or underplaying real news, and this is a first step toward that.
