Audio Listen to program (53:00s)

Marvin Kalb
December 22, 2006
Veteran journalist Marvin Kalb says cable TV, the Internet and the pressure to make profit have transformed the media, but not in a good way. Kalb, who spent three decades at CBS and NBC, is now a lecturer at Harvard University's Shorenstein Center on the Press, Politics and Public Policy. He spoke about the current state of journalism at the National Press Club on Dec. 1, calling his speech "A Reporter's Lament and a Call to Arms."
