‘Today’ Show Interviews Ithaca College Media Critic Jeff Cohen
ITHACA, NY — NBC’s “Today” show featured an interview with Jeff Cohen, associate professor of journalism and founding director of the Park Center for Independent Media in the Roy H. Park School of Communications.
Cohen, a longtime media scholar and critic, spoke with Matt Lauer about whether “seeing is believing” when it comes to what we find on the Internet and on television news. Cohen said the media need to be more accountable, but that ultimately it is up to the reader and viewer to bring a healthy dose of skepticism to what they are seeing and hearing.
