The Last Days of Democracy: How Big Media and Power-Hungry Government Are Turning America Into a Dictatorship Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In this chilling account of an America in political and cultural decline, media critics Cohen and Fraser show how mainstream media corporations have become administration pawns in a well-organized effort to hijack America.

Book News Annotation:

Illegal domestic spying, lying the country into a disastrous war, punishing dissenters such as Ambassador Joseph Wilson, and election fraud are only a few of the Bush administration actions that are leading the people of the United States down the primrose path to dictatorship, believe Cohen (editor in chief, International Journal of Applied Physiology) and Fraser (founder and president, Americans for Moral Government, "a political action committee devoted to the preservation and promotion of democratic values"). While decrying these and other administration actions, they also argue that the administration would not be able to carry out their nefarious activities were it not for the active complicity of the corporate media, which is hardly "liberal" and works to both obscure administration wrongdoing, consolidate its own control over all information (including the relatively free Internet), and dumb down the American populace.
