Television newsrooms are helping fuel the fake news image with their anchor-report debrief segments. Reporter facts too often are overshadowed by anchor opinion.
At stake is accuracy and trust. A strong news force in this country keeps everyone honest, acting on the up-and-up. Compromised news allows people and organizations to take advantage of others.
This is for the stewards of news and those of us who depend on them to do their job with pristine execution so that all of us benefit. This is a continuing series on news; go back and listen to our episode with Dale Forbis of Learfield Communications on fake news
Enjoy the episode. You will enjoy hearing the first soundbite, a train wreck TV anchor-reporter debrief. You’ll thank me later for including that and getting you to click on the episode.
After you do that, share this with your friends and then share your thoughts before with ideas how to improve news. Plus, vote in our poll
I’ll have bonus episodes later this spring continuing this topic:
- One practice news organizations must stop to combat the fake news image
- A major market local TV newsroom that produces great reporter debriefs
