On this program,
Emmy Award-winning host Steve Adubato talks candidly about
the media's coverage, or lack of coverage, of important
public issues. This is part of a three-part series exploring
the opportunities and obstacles faced by the media in promoting
a more informed and active citizenry in New Jersey. The
panel of media experts examines how the public learns about
important campaign issues and the media's role in reporting
that information. Are journalists relying too much on information
supplied from political camps? Is the media underestimating
what the public wants to know and providing " sexy
sound-bites" rather than a critical analysis of a candidate's
proposed policies and positions? Additionally this panel
of experts from print, television, radio and academia consider
ways that institutions can work together to coordinate educational
efforts that best serve the public interest.
