But there's something else worth noting here. TV itself is a biased medium. In the early days of television, and before that radio, the hope was that technology could take out the middleman-journalist and provide "objective" reporting. Just place a microphone or a camera at the heart of the action, and the audience will get that "You Are There" feeling. The problem is that the camera and the microphone are very often less objective than the pen or the keyboard. Worse, electronic journalists often hide behind the facade of technology and the sensory immersion of the audience, as a way to fake immediacy and intimacy.
