The More You Watch, the Less You Know: Adventures in the Media

The More You Watch, the Less You Know: Adventures in the Media Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A candid insider's tale of how the media really works and why it doesn't work the way it should, The More You Watch, The Less You Know has emerged as a key catalyst in the debate on media reform. The More You Watch, The Less You Know recounts Schechter's media adventures, from when he was "Danny Schechter the News Dissector" on Boston's WBCN radio, to his stints as a producer at ABC's 20/20 and CNN, to his personal odyssey chronicling the anti-Apartheid revolution in South Africa, to his development of innovative programming like South Africa Now and Rights & Wrongs as an independent producer. In this age of telecommunications bills and media mergers, The More You Watch, The Less You Know is an insiders passionate plea for freedom of the (electronic) press.

About the Author

Formerly a Nieman Fellow in Journalism at Harvard and a television producer, DANNY SCHECHTER has made waves in the mainstream and alternative media for decades. Called the "alternative Walter Cronkite," he has witnessed and participated in the history-making events of our age, from the founding of the Yippies in 1967, to Nelson Mandela's triumphant presidential election in 1994, for which Schechter was designated the exclusive filmmaker, to the Media and Democracy Congress of 1996, which he helped organize, through the present day. He has reported from forty-nine countries in his over forty years in the broadcast journalism business.
