This week's news that wasn't

Friday, May 01, 2009

This week news congealed around three stories: The swine flu outbreak, Senator Specter’s departure from the Republican Party and President Obama’s first 100 days in office. But in a world where there are over six and a half billion people, why aren't more stories covered?

Joining The Takeaway to talk about the news food chain is Mark Jurkowitz. He is the associate director of the Pew Research Center’s Project for Excellence in Journalism. And to talk about the stories that should have made the headlines is Salon Columnist Glenn Greenwald.
