Remaking ‘Reliable Sources’

Reuters media columnist Jack Shafer has some thougts about what CNN should do with its media criticism show, vacated earlier this Summer by Howard Kurtz:

“…the first agenda item should be to destroy the “Reliable Sources” set so it can’t come back as a talk show about the news. Instead, remake it as a news show about the news. Reporting, not opinion, is the life’s blood of journalism. Instead of phoning press critics to appear on the new show, fund a unit that would actually report on the press, on press ideology and practice, on the advertising business, on corporate media, on individual news stories, journals, and journalists.”

In the meantime, “Reliable Sources” continues with a rotating cast of hosts, using the same format. Politico’s Patrick Gavin hosts this Sunday.
