This week on CounterSpin: Few media critics have been afforded an intimate, on-the-job view of the outlets they criticize, but FAIR founder Jeff Cohen spent years in and out of Fox News, MSNBC and CNN. In his new book, Cable News Confidential: My Misadventures in Corporate Media, Cohen takes the reader inside TV news and probes the conservative biases, timidity and tabloidism that dominate it. Today, in a special extended CounterSpin interview, we talk to Jeff Cohen about his adventures and the book that, it's safe to say, will end any hope he has for a future in cable punditry.
