Overview

In The Death of Media , Emmy Award-winning journalist Danny Schechter offers a blistering polemic about the unprecedented interest in media reform—from protests by Pope John Paul II to local radio DJs—that signals the end of media as we know it.

But Schechter doesn’t tell the story you might expect, that of the blogosphere replacing daily newspapers. Rather, he chronicles new players—including Google, a diverse world of independent outlets, and media reform movement—while showing how they have carefully organized around issues in traditional media.

Convinced that “we can’t fix America without fixing the media,” The Death of Media shows why the fight to change our media is bigger than any political fight yet.
