We are in the midst of a communications revolution. We have access to more information than any people in history. But are we more informed or just overwhelmed by so much information we can't process? In Overload, legendary television journalist Bob Schieffer examines today's journalism and those who practice it-how they see their profession, how it has been changed by new technology, and how well they believe they are carrying out their responsibility to provide Americans with the information they need to be good citizens. Based on interviews with over 40 media leaders from television, print media, and the Internet, Schieffer surveys the perils and promises of journalism's rapidly changing landscape.
