“The media” is a blanket term that covers everything from social media to 24-hour TV networks to traditional newspapers like our own.
Despite the catch-all nature of the plural phrase, consumers can treat news outlets as though they are singular, particularly if they disagree with the news as it’s reported.
In today’s episode of The Gaggle: An Arizona politics podcast, media critic Bill Goodykoontz joins hosts Yvonne Wingett Sanchez and Ronald J. Hansen to discuss the changing relationship between news producers and consumers, especially during presidential elections. Unlike traditional news reporters, Goodykoontz is a columnist, meaning he’s free to express opinions about election coverage that others might withhold.
The trio discusses how the coverage of the election has evolved since 2016 and whether there’s still room for improvement. They also discuss the rise in alternative media and what role disreputable outlets could play in future elections.
