TV Weak on Bailout Analysis

Oct 2, 2008  •  Post A Comment

In all the real-time coverage of the stock market rollercoaster and the vote in the House, television news channels appeared to favor a bailout rather than analyzing whether the $700 billion plan was necessary, the Los Angeles Times says. TV reports also failed to probe why the bailout measure failed, the paper said. The coverage drew big ratings on Monday, with 6.3 million viewers tuning in to CNN, CNBC, Fox News Channel and MSNBC.
