TV Newsroom “If It Bleeds It Leads” Culture on Flow of Wisdom Radio


On this week’s Flow of Wisdom (FOW) Radio Show with Sean Anthony, Emmy Award-Winning Investigative Journalist, Ben Swann, discussed details behind media newsroom culture and the motto, “If It Bleeds It Leads.”

Swann explained why “killings and stabbings” are unquestionable lead stories on media newscasts and why newsroom executives’ reject cover stories with “real truth.”

Sean Anthony also received exclusive information from the journalist about the manipulative plans behind media politics, which he experienced during the 2012 Presidential Campaign. Swann’s interview with President Obama transformed him from a local news reporter into a national media game changer.

He has since started his own independent effort on www.benswann.com to emphasize alternative news that typically, does not receive coverage in mainstream media. His goal is to be a “catalyst to force [national] media to cover” the issues that people need to know.
