Trust in the media and the press has fallen significantly in the last fifty years. It's just half of what it was in the 1970's. With us today to help determine whether journalistic integrity still exists and her thoughts on the current state of the media is journalist Margaret Sullivan.

In her newly released book, Newsroom Confidential: Lessons (And Worries) From An Ink-Stained Life, Sullivan chronicles her career, challenges she faced as a woman in journalism, and what she believes needs to be done in order for Americans to regain their trust in the news.
