Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A vital handbook for deciphering widespread media bias, this book dissects news coverage of a wide range of issues--taxes, the Persian Gulf, social security, abortion, drugs, environmental pollution, U.S.-Soviet relations, terrorism, the Third World--and exposes the key stories that have been censored or glossed over by major media. **Lightning Print On Demand Title

Synopsis:

"Committed, eloquent writings that plumb teh psychological and political complexities of mass-mediated experience." --San Francisco Chronicle

"An essential text." --Utne Reader

"More than helping to detect bias, "Unreliable Sources" tells the stories behind the stories called news. It should help build a national constituency for liberating media from all major constraints-- corporate as well as governmental." --George Gerbner, Dean Emeritus and Professor of Communications, The Annenberg School for Communications

"You gotta love these guys. Not only have Lee and Solomon written a timely consumer primer on conservative bias in reporting, they've done it with humor." --Washington Journalism Review
