History Slam

American Journalism

Last week, we got back to posting new episodes of the History Slam podcast over at Activehistory.ca. In this episode, I talk with Matt Pressman about his forthcoming book on American journalism in the 1960s and 1970s. We chat about the definition of journalism, the state of newspapers, and the inclusion of ‘soft’ news into journalism. Matt is also a former JEOPARDY! champion, so we talk about his experience on the show and what you don’t see on television. You can find the full post here.
