In this episode, we chat with Jon Allsop, who writes a daily newsletter about the media industry for the Columbia Journalism Review, and features and columns on media and politics for magazines including the New York Review of Books, The Nation, and Foreign Policy. His award-winning investigative reporting on the global lottery industry has appeared in outlets in the United States and South Africa. Allsop is a freelancer based in London. With media covering media increasing in the U.S., we get an inside look at why that's so important, and how current events are stressing traditional methods of journalism. From entertainment to politics and, well, political entertainment, we even discuss how the U.S. news media compares with its British counterparts. The answer may surprise you. Take a listen and be in the know in 30. Hosted by Jaci Clement, CEO & Executive Director of the Fair Media Council, a 501c3 nonprofit organization advocating for quality news and working to create a media-savvy society.
