Jeff Cohen and Cable News Confidential
A few months ago, PoliPointPress published Jeff Cohen's Cable News Confidential, which describes Jeff's years at CNN, Fox, and MSNBC. Jeff was a longtime media critic before he secured a front row seat at the cable news circus. (Many will also recognize him as a key expert in Robert Greenwald's documentary Outfoxed.) This is a very funny book, but it delivers a serious message about the corporate media's failure to cover the most urgent issues of the day.
As soon as I heard Jeff's book idea, I realized it was perfect for P3, and he did a great job with it. And because of his years in the media biz, both in front of and behind the camera, he's an excellent spokesperson and guest. In fact, I'm listening to him now on KQED Forum with Michael Krasny. Here's the link:
For more information on the book, see the PoliPointPress link on this site. I'm especially proud of this one.
Jeff will be appearing with Scott Ritter tomorrow at College of Marin (2:00) and in Oakland (7:00, 2501 Harrison St.).
