The Arc of Crisis: Bringing context to journalism
Produced by: Bill Drummond
The September 11 terrorist attacks affected the United States in ways beyond the obvious concerns of airport safety and security. To William Drummond, a professor of journalism at the University of California, Berkeley, the terrorist attacks exposed a weakness in the way news media had been presenting the world to the American public. In the last two decades, the growth of 24- hour cable news has dramatically increased the amount of information, but reduced the amount of context, explanation and understanding. The public was seeing more, but understanding it less. Drummond decided to change this by teaching a course that would train a new breed of techno savvy journalists who could bring more context and meaning in reporting. He titled the course 'The Arc of Crisis.'
