Michael McGough, of the Pisstburgh Post-Gazette, should have known better than to appear on Bill O’Reilly’s radio show (he’d first agreed to appear on the TV show). What possible good can it do a print journalist to subject himself to the sound-bite pathos of radio or TV? Well, I suppose there is the hope of being lifted from the mundane world of solid journalism into the sparkling lights of fame and fortune.
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.
