Chris Hedges on the ‘Disintegrated’ Media, Cultural Illiteracy

Posted on Mar 16, 2011
In case it wasn’t clear from his columns, Chris Hedges is not optimistic about the state of American media and chagrined by the future of a culture in which “people don’t read anymore,” as he notes in this interview with Media Roots. Hedges doesn’t spare the Internet in this critique, either, pegging online news as a “big game of telephone” that ignores the journalistic standards of reporting and vetting set, if not always followed, by “old” media.  —KA
