Why we don't watch TV news

We don't watch television and especially avoid TV news. The bias is one aspect, but also the lack of depth and logical analysis is another.
The Belmont Club is a fine analysis blog and this post links to a good video showing how news is manufactured.
Go to that post and download the wmv file (Warning! It is a large file). Watch it with the children and discuss the role of media and how to be aware that what one sees is not necessarily the full picture.
