Midmorning: Cho video decisions and a pair of poets
Posted at 7:42 AM on April 26, 2007 by Bill Wareham
With NBC's decision to broadcast the videotape of Seung Hui Cho, media coverage of the Virginia Tech massacre became the story and may have started a backlash against the competitive nature of the news business. At 9 a.m., Midmorning's guests are Jane Kirtley, Silha professor of media ethics and law, and director of the Silha Center for Media Ethics and Law at the University of Minnesota; and Ed Schiappa, chair of the department of communication studies at the University of Minnesota.
At 10 a.m., Galway Kinnell and Josephine Dickinson talk about how poetry connects people of different nationalities and experiences. Kinnell reads from Strong is Your Hold, Dickinson, from her collection of poems, Silence Fell. This is from the Talking Volumes event earlier this month at the Fitzgerald Theater.
