Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Taking a critical perspective on the economics and politics of "presenting" the news, this topical supplement argues that the media systematically distorts news coverage.

Synopsis:

For many people an issue does not exist until appears in the news media. Indeed, what we even define as an issue or event, what we see and hear, and what we do not see and hear are greatly determined by those who control the communications world. One book cannot cover all that might be said about the media. The author concentrates on national and international politico-economic class issues, with some attention given to the racist and sexist biases in the media.

Synopsis:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 233-254) and index.

Eye opening. I came across this book by accident at a yard sale decided to read it. It was an incredible insight into how media can and has been controlled by corporations. One explanation that caught my mind was the one about Journalist "self-censorship" culture, Parenti explains how basically most Journalist start off wanting to make a difference and report on what really matters (real news) but are quickly subdued into making advertisers happy.
