In How to Watch TV News, academic Neil Postman and television journalist Steve Powers explain that television news, in fact, even what is considered to be news, is determined by dollars, not by a sense of journalistic mission. After going through the nuts and bolts of the business and the everyday factors that affect news reports, the authors discuss the bias of language and pictures and the role of commercials. This could be a useful curriculum tool in your media unit.
