#1350: Was A United Passenger's Past Newsworthy?

Apr 16, 2017

(Airs 4/16 & 4/17/17) The Media Project is an inside look at media coverage of current events with WAMC’s CEO Alan Chartock, Albany Times Union Editor Rex Smith, and Daily Freeman Publisher Emeritus Ira Fusfeld. On this week's show they talk about the United Airlines viral video and whether the United passenger’s ‘troubled past’ was newsworthy, Bill O’Reilly’s on vacation, but will he return to Fox after sexual harassment claims/settlements get him in hot water, the Pulitzer Prize awards and how they show that layoffs haven’t sapped the heart of local news, and more.
