About The Book
Media critic Norman Solomon has done it again. In this latest collection of columns, he details the most recent excesses and failures of America’s self-censoring mainstream media, and brings you the real story on issues like: — The irony of the Zippergate President preaching abstinence to poor women and putting millions of dollars into “chastity education” programs — and the even greater irony of the media ignoring this aspect of the Clinton scandals;
– The V-chip’s unexplored potential to zap out commercials;
– How the U.S. government’s self-righteous criticisms of Indian and Pakistani nuclear tests got plenty of uncritical reporting, while the media forgot to mention that the U.S. spends $4 billion a year to develop its own nuclear weapons;
– The stark contrast between coverage of Wall Street and coverage of Main Street;
– “Media Scenes We’d Like to See” — fantasies as appealing as they are unlikely, which include a vision of Dan Rather, Tom Brokaw and Peter Jennings donating their fortun to a trust fund for independent journalism and vowing to tell the truth even it gets them fired.
From the relentless pro-corporate spin of daily news to the media’s persistent lack of diversity, Solomon covers it all. New readers as well as old fans will welcome this invaluable book from a journalist who knows exactly how the media works — and how to work it, appearing on TV and radio across the country to get the word out and challenge the status quo.
