if you skip to about 4:40 in the interview you will come across these gems:

Quote
"We now don?t know where people get their news, but what we do know is they?re bombarded with information 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Most of the information is wrong and some of it is wrong on purpose.

It is our job, I think, in mainstream journalism to try to cut through this mall of information and tell people what we think is relevant and what they need to know. That is the job of the journalist and I have to say it?s harder and harder."

And with those parting nuggets of wisdom, Bob Schieffer sums up everything that is wrong with the corporate controlled media, and why their ratings continue to scrape all-time lows.

As for the information we are being bombarded with being incorrect, and purposefully so...well what do you expect when we essentially dismantle our 'anti-propaganda' laws. But even without those laws, the government has a pretty terrible track record when it comes to spinning the news.
