The dirty world of network TV


A former NBC journalist breaks down exactly how network news works, or doesn’t, in an article for the MIT Technology Review all about working at Dateline NBC, the program behind “To Catch a Predator,” the circus-like takedown of online pedophiles that has become the raison d’etre for the show. It’s an interesting article covering the differing perspectives of old and new media, the future of journalism, and how the news business has gone off the rails in the last decade.

Warren Frey is a journalist, freelance writer, podcaster, video producer, and all-around media consultant currently based in Vancouver, Canada. His written work has appeared in such publications as Metro Vancouver, the Westender, Mac | Life and the Japan Times.
