(audio) Why today's mainstream newspapers print an increasing amount of junk: Nancy Cleeland

From CounterSpin

A dispiriting sign of the times—yet another veteran, award-winning journalist leaving the field. Nancy Cleeland was a labour reporter (you've heard of that) at the Los Angeles Times; she wrote on a range of issues affecting working class people, even shared in a Pulitzer for a series on Wal-Mart. But, she says, the paper today just doesn't seem to care about stories about working people or the poor—no matter how critical those stories are. We'll hear from Nancy Cleeland.

Listen and Learn!

The interview with Nancy starts at 10:25.
