Reviews

"No one knows this field better than McChesney, and with this book he has reached the pinnacle."
--Matthew Rothschild, editor of The Progressive

"A thorough and alarming critique of the corruption of one of the most influential inventions in human history."
--Publishers Weekly, starred review

"Indispensable reading."
--Gar Alperovitz, author of What Then Must We Do?

"Once again, McChesney stands at the crossroads of media dysfunction and the denial of democracy, illuminating the complex issues involved and identifying a path forward to try to repair the damage. Here's hoping the rest of us have the good sense to listen this time."
--Eric Alterman
