About the book:

Youve been watching television news forever. Youre intimately familiar with the friendly faces and soothing voices that nightly tell you whats wrong with the world. You think you know everything there is to know about them. Youre wrong.If It Bleeds, It Leads takes us minute-by-minute through two-and-one-half real hours of syndicated, local, and network information programming to uncover the truth behind what passes as news. Why is the only real difference between Jerry Springer and Dan Rather that Dans guests usually dont need medical attention? How did a load of baking powder spark two minutes of high-strung local news coverage? Its all here: the personal revelations of talk show guests; the dangers lurking in your neighborhood; sports; sex; celebrity; power; and weather updates every ten minutes--all real material taken from real broadcasts designed to keep viewers glued to the screen.
