Bob Schieffer’s “Overload”

Listen 48:58

BOB SCHIEFFER has been a journalist for CBS News for nearly 50 years covering the White House, the Pentagon, the State Department, Congress, and anchoring the news on CBS. In his new book, Overload: Finding the Truth in Today’s Deluge of News, Schieffer interviews other news outlets, including NBC, the New York Times, Politico and NPR, about how Americans receive and interpret real and fake news. Schieffer also examines the effect of rapid technological changes in news consumption. He joins Marty for an hour of discussion about how to navigate the news and separate fact from fiction.
