The Nation‘s Katrina vanden Heuvel takes on Dan Abrams on MSNBC
over his new site GossipCop.com. Instead of policing the gossip
industry, vanden Heuvel notes, the media should be policing the
government and keeping track of its untruths. She calls Abrams and
others like him out on their blurring of the line between information
and entertainment, and says that that is what is really causing the
crisis of confidence in today’s media.
