James Creange ’17 and the legendary journalist discuss topics from Schieffer’s new book, Overload: Finding the Truth in Today’s Deluge of News (Rowman & Littlefield, 2017). Schieffer’s new nonfiction book asks whether people today, who have access to more information than in any other time in history, are better informed or are simply overloaded by all that information. The book is based on interviews with more than 40 journalists and news executives. The interviews were conducted by Schieffer and H. Andrew Schwartz for their weekly podcast, About the News, and includes a chapter from Kristie Bunton, dean of the Bob Schieffer College of Communication.
