Media Motivator #1 The News is Always On 9/10/08 “ The greatest felony in the news business today is to be behind, or to miss a big story. So speed and quantity substitute for thoroughness and quality, for accuracy and context.” - Carl Bernstein “ Yeah, I'm obnoxious, yeah, I cut people off, yeah, I'm rude. You know why? Because you're busy.” - Bill O’Reilly

Enormous Pressure to Be First

Media Motivator #4 If it Bleeds, It Leads 9/10/08 “ The sports page records people's accomplishments, the front page usually records nothing, but man's failures.” - Barbara Walters “ I imagine a lot of people tune in simply to watch reporters get bitch-slapped by Mother Nature, and frankly, who can blame them?” - Anderson Cooper
