Feedback: What did you think of this show?: 

Guests: Linda Strine and Wil Simon were the guests for this special Space Show program addressing issues related to space news reporting, science journalism, broadcast and other forms of media/journalism. We began the discussion by defining the different types of media, how they are used, and often how news is filtered through each format. During the program we covered all forms of media, both for general reporting, space, and science. It's an in-depth discussion about how news and facts are presented, distorted, manipulated or glossed over. We learned to be aware of the use of quotes and how they are used, camera angles, and much more. These are discussions you will want to hear. As a result of a listener question, our guests talked about entertainment news such as The Daily Show and The Colbert Report, especially for Gen Y. Listeners were strongly urged to use multi sources for news, each with a different perspective or orientation. Wil suggested using 3 to 6 different sources. Other listeners said they did not have time for all that checking, so listen to what our guests suggested in those cases. Both guests urged listeners to approach news and reporting from all sources as healthy skeptics. We also talked about public relations and doing PR for the government as well as corporations. Our guests separated large, more experienced corporations from the smaller start-ups. Listen to this discussion and see what you think. At another point during the show, it was suggested that radio was perhaps a preferred way of getting news as it was audio and interactive. TV is subject to manipulation, putting your focus someplace other than on the story, etc. During this program, we cover space news and reporting and general news issues.
