Re: “Fair and Unbalanced: The Tale of Two Trials

Questions:

1. For Bailey trial, does "NPR" refer to national NPR news coverage?, or just local coverage (i.e., KQED)?

2. The last sentence says it all. Are we as a community/society/nation interested in what is "more significant" in news and issues?, or just the trivial and sensational?

3. Do we care more about the journalism of Chauncy Bailey?, or the steroids-pumped biceps of Barry Bonds that hit another one over the wall?

4. What do we want our young people to learn? Who are the role models for our society and nation?

5. Does the quality and level of news coverage on any event or issue simply reflect our own expectations and demands, as well as our own intelligence level?

6. What are our values? What do we really care about?
