Live-blogging Midmorning: Is partisan news good for America?

Blogger James O’Keefe’s takedown of NPR is the latest incident in what appears to be a growing battle between conservative news outlets and the mainstream media, and raises questions about the future of news in America. Is partisan news what Americans want, and is it good for our democracy?

Midmorning is tackling the question with guests:

CW Anderson: Assistant professor of media culture at the College of Staten Island and a research fellow at Yale Law School and the New America Foundation.

Tom Rosenstiel: Founder and director of Project for Excellence in Journalism. He is co-author with Bill Kovach of “Blur: How to Know What’s True in the Age of Information Overload.”

I’m live-blogging the conversation. Please share your thoughts and I’ll select the best ones to mention on air.
