Some say that T.V. has gone tabloid, that traditional journalism has been replaced by sensationalism. By examining various examples of broadcasting, such as newsmagazines, talk shows, and police dramas, the author shows how we are all influenced by, and how we in turn influence, T.V. programming. Explores the history of the media, from the first newspapers to today's cable TV, and discusses ethics, violence, and politics within the medium of television. A list of ten suggestions on how to judge a show is included.
