How to Watch TV News – Postman & Powers

htwtnHow to Watch TV News by Neil Postman & Steve Powers is an OK read about how TV news is put together. At just 170 pages it’s a brief and manageable examination of the subject.

I liked, and have long adhered to, three of the book’s final recommendations:

– Reduce the amount of TV news you watch
– Query whether items are important or not
– Reduce the number of opinions you feel obligated to have
