Here’s how the Media Got the Brian Williams Story All Wrong

How the media got the Brian Williams story all wrong.

And… Hey newspapers! Want a younger video audience? Try a sock puppet!

It’s episode 13 of Media Unplugged with branding authority Tom Asacker and media strategist Mark Ramsey.

Listen as we go inside media to reveal the ugly truth!

For our discussion on how the media totally screwed up the Brian Williams story, check this piece out from Grant McCracken (but don’t expect us to agree completely with it).

For our take on the newspaper that’s seeking a younger video audience with an anchor who is (no joke) a sock puppet, go here.

In our always popular rants and raves section, Tom rants about Cindy Crawford’s face and so much more, while Mark rants about HLN’s uber-pathetic new feature, “News and a Movie.”

Special thanks once again to our awesome producer! Jeff Schmidt — Exciting Audio for Media.
