HKS PolicyCast on Brian Williams and NBC
HKS PolicyCast describes itself as a "weekly podcast on public policy, politics and global issues hosted by Matt Cadwallader and featuring leading voices from Harvard Kennedy School and beyond." In this episode, Cadwallader writes that "HKS Lecturer Jeffrey Seglin of the Kennedy School’s Shorenstein Center on Media, Politics and Public Policy discusses the ethical hot water Brian Williams has recently found himself in. He breaks down the reputational harm that has been done to both Williams and NBC, the steps NBC needs to take to restore its viewers’ faith and the growing similarity between journalists and politicians in the ways they seek to connect with audiences through celebrity."
