Democracy vs Media & Money

 
9780615179445: Democracy vs Media & Money

While many scholars and other experts have written about the current shortcomings of our national government -- record deficits, incompetence, scandals, rancorous partisanship, Iraq, special interests' involvement, etc. -- Democracy vs Media & Money simply and succinctly introduces seven specific ways for revitalizing our democracy and eliminating the perverse effects of oligarchy (government by the few). One of the recommendations targets the mass media, primarily TV, and describes steps that need to be taken to help citizens become more knowledgable and active in dealing with the crucial national issues of the day. As the book states in its opening pages: It s undoubtedly true that in our nation, we have many people with financial and egotistical axes and agendas to grind, but I am totally convinced that the overwhelming majority of us are caring, loving, responsible people who just want to do what s best for each other and the nation. This majority just must have more of a voice in our government. DvM&M contains text, free verse, 12 political-style cartoons, and seven specific recommendations for improving political/governmental communications involving TV news programs, polls, easier electronic voting, publicly-financed elections, writing of laws, monitoring of corporations, and congressional term-limits.

About the Author:

Watt Pye is a native Texan, WWII Navy veteran, and philosophy major graduate. Before retirement, he was a newspaper reporter, editor and columnist, advertising executive, industrial video producer, and director on several private industry association boards and Toastmasters International. His ancestors, he is told, include Nathaniel Hawthorne and Millard Fillmore. That alleged fact, plus 25 cents, will buy him 15 minutes at a downtown parking meter.
