Summary
Essays by media scholars, critics, and journalists explore how corporate owners' conflicting interests and the bottom line have reshaped mainstream news coverage, doing away with independent investigations and becoming largely a paid political announcement. Topics under consideration include methods of media manipulation and propagandizing; the claim of liberal media bias; the threat from big media to free access to information on the Internet; the effects of media consolidation on actors, producers, agents, managers, and lawyers in the film industry; and the standardization of music and reduction of local content in radio. Contributors include critic Eric Alterman, political analyst Michael Parenti, former FCC Chairman Reed Hundt, and public interest advocate Cheryl Leanza.
