This was an interesting overview of changing attitudes in journalism and what makes for a good news media outlet. Although nothing is really covered in-depth a broad variety of media related topics are covered including various laws passed to stifle critique of government and various forms of bias including confirmation bias.

I think Gladstone is more optimistic about people in general than I am.

I'd be very interested in a more in-depth analysis of the issues she raises.
