Harry Shearer on Journalism in the US

Harry Shearer, actor and radio show host, talks about the state of journalism in the US. He spends a long time discussing the news coverage of Katrina, which is of special interest to him because he is from New Orleans. He also jokes about the NPR video sting which caused Vivian Schiller to resign.

The video can be found on C-Span at this website:

He doesn't start talking until about six minutes into the video - I recommend skipping the introductions.
