It's the future, where's my jet pack?

If you care at all about the news and/or the people that cover it, you should check out this series from the show Frontline on PBS. You can watch the entire three part series online. I know it's long, but it's good for you.

Part one is a great refresher on the Valerie Plame case. Can't remember why a guy named Scooter is on trial? Apparently no one can.

Part two is about the pressure TV news has faced top actually be entertaining. Is "To Catch a Predator" on Dateline actually news? Does it matter?

Part three is about newspapers and web sites and where the two actually meet. Are papers a dying industry? If they are, then why do they make so much money?

Pick the section you like or watch all three. I got totally sucked in last night and spent hours contemplating the future of media. It sounds like something Josh would do.
