PBS Begins New Series on "The Future of News"

PBS Frontline has begun broadcasting a new series on "the future of news". Lowell Bergman's NEWSWAR airs on PBS stations around the country and online at www.pbs.org. The website also has additional materials available such as additional interviews and transcripts of the broadcasts. The episodes are also available on DVD and VHS. Part I: Secrets, Sources and Spin aired last night and focused on "The Plame Affair." This first hour covers what will already be familiar to those who have followed the story--the clash between the Administration and the reporters who wrote--or didn't write--about Valerie Plame. Through a variety of interviews the hour puts into perspective the background of and run-up to the Lewis Libby trial and puts in perspective the very real issues at stake.
