I have spent thousands of hours providing medical care in nursing homes as a geriatrician. From this vantage point, I think we need to give the use of cameras some serious thought before plunging headfirst down this new surveillance rabbit hole.
Why is the truth about the latest anti-NPR video not in the mainstream media -- and not on NPR? Why do we have to count on newer news sites -- conservative, liberal , or neither-- to learn this crucial information?
The ultimate failure lately is on the part of NPR, yet not in the way its critics charge. The failure has been to do the first and most basic thing a news organization is supposed to do -- get the story and get it out.
