CBC repeating "Spin Cycles" this summer in "The Sunday Edition"

The second hour of CBC Sunday Edition -- the long-running Sunday morning news magazine -- features a re-airing of the six-part documentary series on the "...creepy concatenations of politics, big business, advertising, and public relations" that pervades today's news gathering and reporting industries.

I highly recommend this series if you want to better understand why news- and current affairs-oriented programming has changed over the past 30 years (give or take); the series has implications for both domestic news coverage as well as international broadcasting.

If you don't want to wait for Sunday mornings, the series audio is available for on-demand listening.
