Media machine

News media is becoming an unchangeable big institution says the chair of Ryerson Journalism. John Miller was speaking at the St. Lawrence Centre’s May 10 public forum addressing the question, “Is the news media credible?”. Miller said the media is not in touch with the public, and the public needs to get it back before damage to the press is irreversible.
