"Media at War is a case study of the period from 1924, the year in which the airways first reposted election returns, through 1939, the year that the Associated Press finally lifted its ban on providing news briefs to radio. During these years most newspapers attempted to block the development of broadcast journalism. At stake was the power to control news distribution--the power to shape public opinion and set the national political agenda."
"In her deeply researched 1995 book, Media at War: Radio's Challenge to the Newspapers, 1924-1939, scholar Gwenyth L. Jackaway charts a similar set of complaints leveled by newspapers against the upstart medium of radio in the 1920s and 1930s."
