The Sunday morning political talk shows offer an excellent case study in news manufacturing and management. John Tierney’s story in The New York Times considers the situation last week, in which the Bush administration, having difficulty with its U.N. resolution, needed to articulate its position ahead of the week’s news. The producers of the shows were only too happy to bump other guests at the last minute in favor of the administration’s spokesmen. (via Political Wire)
