These 3 clips show Robert Krulwich's comments at a 1998 debate on journalism. Not only is this funny and entertaining, it's a pretty good primer on media literacy, as well. Krulwich even manages to get in some compelling comments on the meaning of life, as an aside.

The nearly 2-hour debate can be streamed (and purchased) from C-SPAN:

"Participants debated whether integrity existed in the journalism profession and to what extent someone could be believed if they identified themselves as a journalist. Among the topics discussed were radio and television talk shows, editing, identifying sources, and the proliferation of news programming. At the end of the debate audience members were allowed to present their views."

There's a Brylcreem ad on Tube - probably not the one he refers to, but it's got the jingle at the end.
