Media Obedience to Authority

23 Dec ’06

Nick Douglas posts at Eat the Press that Diane Sawyer Chris Cuomo will be conducting a version of Stanley Milgram’s experiment on obedience to authority on an upcoming version of 20/20. He wonders whether it’s a publicity stunt. I wonder whether it’s commentary on an incurious media’s docility during the runup to the Iraq War. An explanation of Judith Miller’s credulous reporting, perhaps?
