Talking Truth and The Ethics of Network Television News.

Generally, I prepared this audience an imagined audience of people who have seen the movie in mind. But just to make sure we don't leave you completely in the dark this time around: Truth is a movie about the 2004 60 Minutes piece that led to Dan Rather stepping down from the CBS Evening News. Mostly, it focuses on Rather's producer, Mary Mapes.

The movie does a good job of comprehensively showcasing the process for putting together the now-infamous segment. My guest co-host this time around is Josh Ellis, who you may remember from the Ted 2 episode. He studied journalism at Ole Miss, so he has a nice background in this kind of stuff and made for a great conversation partner.

Together, we talked about the many worthy topics brought up in the movie, but also about how much the way we take in the news has changed in the 11 years that have passed since the time in which this movie is set.

Listen in.
