Lara Logan on the War and Media

Lara Logan, a CBS broadcaster, is one of the better journalists, a great interviewer. She makes a sharp criticism of American media. I would argue the media is immature. It has deteriorated over the years, thanks to the rise in popularity of tabloid journalism, which caused the media to stray and take on the more loathsome attributes of celebrity-gotcha journalism. But it's all supply and demand. Seems many Americans have lost an appreciation for real journalism, largely because they're no longer exposed to it.
