A Day that Will Live in TV Infamy (washingtonpost.com) Media Notes by Howard Kurtz. I agree with Kurtz’s concerns this morning about over play of the 9/11 anniversary. He asks: “Will the media be covering the news or just manipulating our emotions for ratings share?” Unless there is something new to report, what we see, hear, and read will likely be manipulation.
