Reforming Real Estate Coverage

How did the mainstream media miss the real estate bubble? On today’s Morning Media Menu, journalist Alyssa Katz talked about her new book, “Our Lot: How Real Estate Came to Own Us“–criticizing journalists’ failure to report on foreclosures and bad housing loans before the recession.

In the book’s reviews, journalists and scholars have repeated the same refrain: we needed this book before the foreclosure crisis. During the interview, Katz gave publishers and authors clues to writing future books about real estate–helping avoid the mistakes that plunged this country into a deep recession.

The show was hosted by GalleyCat editor Jason Boog and AgencySpy editor Matt Van Hoven. You can listen to all the past podcasts at the Morning Media Menu page.
