It’s no secret to Rhetorica readers that I have a low opinion of TV “journalists.” But I am impressed with Aaron Brown of CNN. He, and a few others who bring intelligence and an anti-sensationalist style to the boob tube, makes me think that, perhaps, Neil Postman was wrong in the assessment that TV is worst when it tries to be good.
The Rhetorica Network
I offer commentary on the rhetoric of the American conversation, especially as it unfolds in documentary film, the news media, and politics. Check out my feeds on Twitter and Instagram. Also be sure to see my work at Carbon Trace Productions, a non-profit documentary film studio in Springfield, Missouri. I am a Professor of Media & Journalism at Missouri State University. I teach classes in mobile journalism and documentary filmmaking.
