NOW on PBS | Saving American Journalism | PBS

Duration: 25:37 (Full Program)
Program: NOW on PBS #603

Is good journalism going extinct? Fractured audiences and tight budgets have downsized or sunk many of the fourth estate's major battleships, including this very program. NOW's David Brancaccio talks to professor Bob McChesney and journalist John Nichols about the perils of a shrinking news media landscape and their bold proposal to save noncommercial journalism with government subsidies. Their new book is The Death and Life of American Journalism: The Media Revolution That Will Begin the World Again .

Should public journalism get the next government bailout?
