Democracy and the Media with Andy Kroll and Eric Umansky


What is the role of the Fourth Estate? Can we depend on the media for trusted information? Can Twitter, videos, and rallies circumvent credible media? Is a viable, stable democracy possible without mass communication, television, newspapers, radio, and the internet as reliable information sources?  Does the public care if a story is real or not?  Do facts matter in a democracy? How do we know fact from fiction?
