T.V. News Not Informing Public

Host Bob Edwards speaks with Orville Schell, dean of the University of California-Berkeley Graduate School of Journalism. He and other deans, journalists, and representatives of television networks have held meetings on improving the quality of T.V. news. Schell and other deans are worried that although T.V. news reaches a huge portion of the American audience, it's not doing its job in thoroughly informing the public.
