Broadcast news is dancing on the edge of a disastrous precipice. It threatens to fall completely into the category of “entertainment programming,” and if it does, politics will suffer greatly as Americans lose the ability to agree at least on what the facts are, the most important stories emerging. If all news programming becomes what cable prime time already is, then the news business becomes just another diversion, another channel on the dial of entertainment choices: ubiquitous in our lives, but not the source of news. The driving force behind this change? The baby boomers, of course. "Broadcast News Dances on a Dangerous Precipice" is from the June 27, 2018 Opinion section of The Washington Post. It was written by Hugh Hewitt and narrated by Sam Scholl.
