Never Watch Network News Again

Stonewalled  Just finished Stonewalled by Sheryl Attkisson, an investigative reporter for over thirty years.  She finished her career at CBS News where she was fired from.    A few observations from my reading:

  1. Nobody in the news bureaus want investigative reporting anymore – too risky for all of the negative blowback by those in power.
  2. Nightly News Programs are dumbed down and filtered so that everyone will be happy – a weather story is the most wanted feature – everyone loves weather and no one will complain.
  3. The Obama admin goes after certain stories it disagrees with by going above the reporters head with specific threats on future interview access, etc.
