The “emotional center” of a nation

The Technology Review “You Don’t Understand Your Audience” article by John Hockenberry is a well told story how the broadcasting networks in the United States, especially NBC, have changed their style of presenting news after 9/11 to the worse. Not the truth or the facts are the main theme, now the “emotional center” of the nation has to be supported, good journalism does not matter any more.
This article is a good example how traditional media have changed and why the world now is more attracted by YouType, MySpace and Facebook. Good mainstream journalism seems to be (mostly) dead, at least at the broadcasting networks.
