The Breakdown with Richard Eskow .
Trudy Lieberman, contributing editor of the Columbia Journalism Review and fellow at the Center for Advancing Health, talks with Richard about her recent article exploring the mainstream media's history of biased coverage of Social Security and the impact it may have had on the policy debate. Lieberman argues that the media have helped solidify a narrative of alarmism about Social Security's finances that softens the public to proposed benefit cuts.
