If you haven’t seen it, Control Room is well worth a look. Revealing look at Al Jazeera. This reinforced my view that news is a product rooted in the ground from which is was birthed – it’s biased and subjective. The more extreme the reporting, the less objective it becomes. And, it’s a product subject to as much manipulation by media relations pros as ever – many of whom are seemingly oblivious to the trade they ply.
