Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

Drawn into journalism in Watergates wake, Will Bunch has sought to serve the public good for twenty-five years. He has covered local, regional and national issues, and strived to be both accurate and fair. Hes watched newspapers be bought and sold — and fold — as corporate owners chased out-sized profits, while he and his colleagues struggled to inform the citizenry. Hes also seen his fellow journalists, and himself, fail at holding big business and government accountable, in pursuit of false ideals of access and phony objectivity.

As mainstream media struggle to find their way in this age of consolidation and convergence, what Bunch fears most is that the American public no longer has faith in its media system. To stem that tide, Bunch turned to blogging and to working with citizen journalists, to envision new models for gathering and delivering news and information, which better represent and serve the public interest.

The News Fix provides an award-winning and working journalist-cum-bloggers insider account of the national media crisis, and offers a compelling vision for how professional journalists and citizens can work together to build a dynamic new Fourth Estate in America — one truly worthy of our democracy.
