Reviews

"Jeff Chester is the Paul Revere of the media revolution. Read this book and you will understand the stakes." --Bill Moyers

"No other work as concisely and powerfully frames the democratic challenge that media policy presents. It is time people understood plainly just what is at stake. This book makes that understanding possible." --Lawrence Lessig

"Digital Destiny is the most important book on media policy in years and will become required reading for a generation of students, scholars, activists and concerned citizens across the nation." --Robert W. McChesney

"A noble and eloquent guardian of the public interest, Jeff Chester shows how Big Media too often allows journalism to take a back seat to profit margins. Digital Destiny is a passionate and powerful book." --Ken Auletta, media writer for The New Yorker

"All Americans should read this important and timely book. It discloses the multi-billion dollar agendas of the powers-that-be and precisely how they impact our lives." --Charles Lewis, founder, The Center for Public Integrity
