The CNN Effect

The book of the same name refers to 'the saturation of Western viewers with non-stop, real time news footage'. Earlier this month I added to this saturation, with appearances on Paula Zahn Now and CNN Live Today. There's transcripts to each this link (TO ORDER A VIDEO OF THIS TRANSCRIPT, PLEASE CALL 800-CNN-NEWS OR USE THE SECURE ONLINE ORDER FORM LOCATED AT, says CNN).

I'm quoted as saying "If you were a career criminal, the point is to make the evidence disappear. If you're a happy slapper, you're manufacturing evidence against yourself. It's that use of humiliation as entertainment that makes it so disturbing. " Regular readers will know that already.
