News War

Frontline has produced a great four-part documentary called News War on the history, current state and future of politics and news media. The website contains some interview clips and excellent overview material on the series AND you can watch the entire series online. (PBS is to be commended on being savvy enough to release current on-air material online.)

Drawing on more than 80 interviews with key figures in the print, broadcast and electronic media, and with unequaled, behind-the-scenes access to some of today's most important news organizations, FRONTLINE correspondent Lowell Bergman examines the challenges facing the mainstream news media, and the media's reaction, in "News War," a special four-part series.

NPR interview with investigative reporter and documentary producer Lowell Bergman. (Top-notch interview and a great overview to many of the issues raised by the doc.)
