Description
An analysis of mainstream media coverage of the recent national elections in Nicaragua. This program questions the standard of "objectivity" used by United States' news agencies. The videotape follows representatives from three U.S. news organizations (Newsweek, NBC-TV, and National Public Radio) as they put together reports on the elections. Using interviews with U.S. reporters and producers, the program demystifies and unveils the news gathering process of mainstream media.
