Corcoran skewers TV news with outrageous comments like, "I think it's time that the public accepted the reality that TV news is no lo criticism and theory,education and reference,history and criticism,humor and entertainment,library and information science,literature and fiction,politics and social sciences,social sciences,television Humor & Entertainment, Taylor Trade Publishing
