David Folkenflik at CCSU

Mar 31, 2011

NPR's David Folkenflik once got into a battle of words with Geraldo Rivera.  It just proves that covering the media isn't always pretty. 

His latest assignment is a perfect example: Cover the corporate meltdown of your own company...go! 

In fact, his reporting for NPR on NPR has gotten him praise from around the media world.  In fact, he ended up as one of the Wire's 50 most influential people in the media in 2010. 

Today where we live, NPR's media correspondent talks about turning from a newspaper reporter into a radio reporter, talks about bias in the media, and about how he uses twitter to tell stories.

We recorded our conversation during a daylong journalism conference at CCSU in New Britain.
