Hear a distrusted media source discuss the distrusted media

I’ll be on George Korda’s “State Your Case” radio show form 1-3 (eastern) today. The show is on Newstalk 98.7 FM and is streamed on the web.

From, 1-2, I’ll be talking about near-record-low confidence in newspapers and television news. A recent Gallop organization poll found that those with “a great deal: or “quite a lot” of confidence in newspapers remains at a low level and the percentage dropped to a 20-year low for television news. Some solace, however, was that both rate higher than Congress. Maybe we need to distribute these with each copy?

Confidence in Institutions

From 2 to 3 p.m., I’m hanging around as friend and newspaper consultant Kevin Slimp talks about his recent customer experiences with Delta Air Lines. A frequent traveler to speaking engagements and workshops around the country, his summer of flying has been more about sitting in airports than flying. He started sharing his experiences on his Facebook page; and received support and war stories from many other weary airline passengers.

Should be fun. The show is on the same station, but it has a new home at 98.7. It’s also streamed on the Internet.
