RALEIGH, NC: Broadcast coverage was relentless during and after the nationally televised trial of George Zimmerman for the death of Trayvon Martin. Veteran journalist and college lecturer Doug Spero, a Dunlop Media associate, monitored the output - and couldn't believe what he saw.
"What we have had here is an acute case of agenda-style infotainment," Spero wrote in a nationally published op-ed piece. "Pioneering TV journalists Edward R. Murrow and Walter Cronkite would, no doubt, be horrified. " Courtesy The Christian Science Monitor.
