Ted Koppel: Talking Heads and the Death of Real News: I Am The Slime...


________________________________________________________________________________
Former Nightline managing editor Ted Koppel uses the recent suspension of Keith Olbermann for making campaign contributions to muse on the changes in how news is presented and how the public wants its news.


He wonders in a column in The Washington Post why MSNBC bothered to discipline Olbermann since the cable networks today celebrate and encourage taking sides.

"We live now in a cable news universe that celebrates the opinions of Olbermann, Rachel Maddow, Chris Matthews, Glenn Beck, Sean Hannity and Bill O'Reilly -- individuals who hold up the twin pillars of political partisanship and who are encouraged to do so by their parent organizations because their brand of analysis and commentary is highly profitable," Koppel says.


The problem with the "news" we are getting is that it's only what we want to hear, Koppel writes, akin to the fashion industry which is making men's jeans 3 to 6 inches bigger in the waist but labeling them as "small."


"We celebrate truth as a virtue," he writes, "but only in the abstract.". Click Here His Article
