Conversations about news coverage…

This is a group of “seniors” assembling for a class at Mercer University in Atlanta.  It’s a non-credit course attended by people who already have succeeded in their careers.  They’re here to learn for the sake of learning.  They invited me to lead this once–a-week 8-week course.  Today (Wednesday) was our first session.  We got acquainted and learned a few things about each other.   Their credentials are impressive.    We spent several minutes talking about their impressions of the news media.  For the most part, they are not favorably impressed.  Admittedly, they are an atypical group contrasted with the “focus” groups the media question to help detrmine their direction.  Nevertheless, with these seniors’ permission, we’ll hear from some of them as the Mercer Senior University course continues.
