Transcript

  • 1. The Economic Crisis Coverage: NPR<br />Jimmy, Cindy, Glenn, Cluckey, and Megan<br />
  • 2. NPR’s Mission<br />“The mission of NPR is to work in partnership with member stations to create a more informed public - one challenged and invigorated by a deeper understanding and appreciation of events, ideas and cultures.”<br />
  • 3. Effective Standards of Journalism<br />Speaking in a language that is understandable to the average citizen<br />Credibility<br />Current information, up-to-date, relevant<br />Explain relevance of situation<br />Objective (refrain from political bias)<br />
  • 4. Ineffective Journalism<br />Lacks context<br />Too much economic ‘lingo’<br />Overly speculative<br />Subjective (overly political)<br />
  • 5. What Was Going on in News Pre- Crisis ?<br />2008 Presidential Election (Primaries)<br />Hurricane Katrina/Recovery<br />Virginia Tech Shooting<br />Iraq<br />Gas Prices (#1 story)<br />
  • 6. Ineffective Coverage Before<br />All Things Considered:<br />July 23rd 2007<br />GONZALES: What&apos;s less apparent is the green water, the kind you find in backyard swimming pools that have been abandoned by homeowners. Deborah Bass shows us one of them.<br />Ms. DEBORAH BASS (Public Affairs Manager, Contra Costa Mosquito &amp; Vector Control District): Well, we see a pool that is bright green; there seemingly are probably tens of thousands of mosquitoes in this pool. They&apos;re just wiggling all around.<br />GONZALES: Bass is with the County Mosquito Control Program. She worries that the abandoned pools will lead to the spread of West Nile virus.<br />Ms. BASS: Well, we&apos;re seeing a lot of pools abandoned like this because of the foreclosure rate. A lot of people are worried about the finances, of course, and are probably not worried about what&apos;s going on in their backyard. <br />
  • 7. Effective Journalism Before<br />Morning Edition:<br />February 28th 2007 <br />Kevin Caron of Ryan Beck says Greenspan may be right.<br />Mr. CARON: We think that the evidence is now pointing increasingly towards a softer, or more of a rough patch for the economy, perhaps later this year moving into next year, where the odds of recession are indeed climbing.<br />ZARROLI: But a lot of other market watchers said the reaction to Greenspan&apos;s remarks was probably overblown. Yesterday might have been one of the biggest one-day point losses for the market, but in percentage terms, it was less than historic.<br /> Tim Ghriskey, of Solaris Asset Management, says the market may have fallen about as much as it&apos;s going to. As dramatic as the drop appeared to be, he says there is reason for optimism. For one thing, Ghriskey says, there is still a great deal of liquidity in the market.<br />
  • 8. …. <br />All Things Considered<br />September 7th 2007- ‘Is a recession in the making?’<br />
  • 9. Asking and Answering Questions<br />What caused the economic crisis in 2008<br />Surviving financial crisis<br /> - Interview with Chris Gardner<br />
  • 10. Clear Explanations<br />Use questions to make listeners and readers <br /> understand the crisis better <br />Analysis of Wall Street Firms<br />Explaining Government’s Rescue Plan <br />
  • 11. Too Personal, and Too Much Complaint<br />Where’s my personal bailout?<br />From Timothy Martin (one of the listener)<br />Now, with college looming large for my teenage kids, I would like to have a higher education bailout. I realized that I should have been saving more money for their college funds, but it&apos;s not that easy to squirrel away money for college or have an eight-figure retirement plan when you don&apos;t work on Wall Street. One last thing, I could also use a Visa bailout. My bill has crept up to more than $10,000 in the last five years. I suppose living large had something to do with it - you know doctor bills, car maintenance, home repairs, trips to the orthodontist.<br />Is there no end to the wild and crazy times one can have? I&apos;ve realized that most good citizen&apos;s payoff their credit card bills, but I&apos;d rather shirk my responsibilities just like AIG and Lehman Brothers. Look, I may not be the CEO of Goldman Sachs but since a Federal Reserve board is rewarding reckless investment bankers and setting up relief operations for greedy lenders, I was hoping my family just might qualify. So Secretary Paulson, can I have my bailout now?<br />
