News Organizations Should Air Their Dirty Laundry in Public

INTERVIEW ON THE PRICE OF BUSINESS SHOW, MEDIA PARTNER OF THIS SITE.

Recently Kevin Price, Host of the nationally syndicated Price of Business Show, interviewed David Dozier who is a leading media authority.

Price and Dozier look at the extraordinary story by the Los Angeles Times about its own editorial nefariousness. In July, the Los Angeles Times published a front-page story about ongoing scandals at the University of Southern California. These include the former dean of the medical school partying with dangerous drugs, including crystal.  One partygoer died; USC covered it up. But the really interesting nugget was the exposé of the Times own role in the coverup. Two Times investigative reporters on the story worked in secret. That’s because two editors at the Times tried to assist in the coverup. The Times exposed all of this in its front-page story. This is similar to the May 2004 mea culpa in the New York Times regarding that newspaper’s shoddy coverage leading up to the U.S. invasion of Iraq. Such articles occur way too infrequently. We argue that news organizations need to routinely report on their own failings. News organizations air the dirty laundry of others. They should demand the same transparency of themselves that they demand from the organizations and institutions they cover (www.DavidDozierBooks.com).
