Reliable Sources with Brian Stelter
Reliable Sources examines how journalists do their jobs and how the media affect the stories they cover in this weekly CNN program. Full video episodes available in the iTunes store.
David Zurawik, a 32-year veteran of the Baltimore Sun, opens up about why he left the newspaper last year. He says he sensed pressure to tone down some of his politically opinionated columns and lacked confidence in hedge fund Alden Global Capital's ownership of the paper. Zurawik, now a CNN media analyst, talks about the state of local news; the launch of a nonprofit news outlet called The Baltimore Banner; and the House's hearings about January 6. He says it is vital to uphold the news media's "public service" mission.
