Media Wars: News at a Time of Terror (Polemics)

by

Media Wars: News at a Time of Terror (Polemics) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Media Wars is a timely assessment of what we are and are not being told in the most important story of our new century.

Review:

"As 'News Dissector' on Boston radio, Danny Schechter literally educated a generation..." Noam Chomsky

Book News Annotation:

Frequently incorporating contributions from other journalists and media critics, Schechter (editor of the media watchdog site Mediachannel.org) presents excerpts from his online weblog (or blog), a number of essays, and some analytical studies that together indict the corporate media for failing in its proper mission of providing information necessary to an informed citizenry, especially at a time when the White House is using fear of terrorism to conduct an aggressive militaristic foreign policy. Much of the material focuses on such topics as important stories that have been neglected, the bias of "experts" that get interviewed or cited, and biased use of language by the media itself. Annotation (c)2003 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Schechter resides in New York and his writings have appeared in leading newspapers and magazines including The Boston Globe, Newsday, The Detroit Free Press, The Village Voice, and The Columbia Journalism Review. Media Wars is his fifth book.
