Katie Couric talks about changing the way news is covered:
Viewers told her they want more perspective and
"a better understanding of the ramifications of the news," she says. "I
got the distinct sense they want us to go a little bit deeper" with
historical background and "how is this relevant to their lives. (And)
we heard from many people the news is just too depressing. Obviously,
we can't sugar-coat what's going on, but there are cases where we can
be more solution-oriented."
Some thought the media portrayed a "polarizing
of the country that they don't see," thought TV news "abdicated its
role, really talking about facts and information rather than points of
view," and want "more thinking, less spewing."
