The Journalist as Celebrity

The role of the media in today's world: the things we do and why we do them. First, some remarks about the speaker's recent decision to remain a broadcaster in Canada, and the controversy that caused. Current challenges for journalists, including new technologies and the increasing exposure of journalists themselves. The challenges of responsibilities that are becoming ever more public. The failure of the media to discuss with the people they cover, just how the job is done. How decisions are made; the criteria used to determine what is "news." Weaknesses of TV news. Canadians' reliance on TV news for most of their information. The basic elements of the newsmaking picture: the media; government, business, labour; the public. The responsibilities of each of those elements.
