I talk frequently on my show about the media, its need to create drama and its negative effect on us all. So, I took my questions to Prof Michael Schudson, one of the most distinguished professors of journalism in the country who teaches at Columbia University in New York. Some questions to him: Is what comes out of CNN and Fox News actually journalism, or just commentary? Is the media liberal? Is there fake news? What is main-stream news and what isn't, and is there valid non-main-stream news? Is journalism better today, or worse, comparatively over the last hundred years? Is drama built into journalism? And more.
