Getting past the shouting
: MSNBC’s Connected has a good show on right now trying to get past the shouting and have on experts who debate the issues, ethics, and facts about whether there is a chance of recovery in a case like Schiavo’s and whether a feeding tube is medical treatment.
Just finished watching the whole show. It was good because it used the form — talk — to get past opinion and shouting and tried to find the facts and inform (ain’t that journalism?). Of course, there was disagreement. But the show was grounded in an effort to inform.
