Rather Attacks Corporatization of News

Jun 9, 2008  •  Post A Comment

Dan Rather criticized the bottom line of merging media companies at the National Conference for Media Reform, Broadcasting & Cable reports. Rather argued that corporate news companies are more concerned with making money and “so-called human-interest stories, celebrity fluff, sensationalist trials and gossip” than in providing incentives for “good and valuable news,” the magazine says. He urged consumers to make their voices heard and let news organizations know that they don’t approve, the newspaper notes.
