PRAGER UNIVERSITY: Can You Trust the Press?
"Give us five-minutes and we’ll give you a semester." - Dennis Prager
This semester of Prager University is presented by: Judith Miller (Liberal)
"A decline in reporting standards; a decline in revenue; an increase in bias, have made many wary of the people who provide them with their news. A certain amount of skepticism is a healthy thing. But a thriving democracy depends on a dynamic and free press." – J.M.
"Inserting opinions, even in the middle of a news story, is a way in which journalists can distinguish themselves. And in mainstream media outlets, those opinions overwhelmingly tend to be liberal. This may not be so bad if journalists acknowledged their bias. But they almost never do. Yet the bias is obvious." – J.M.
