Politics. "Drive-by journalism" has fostered the widespread trashing of government, the destruction of politicians via gotcha journalism, the shaping of politics to media needs, and the swapping of empty political coverage for political ads. It also means exploiting the First Amendment for commercial gain, letting advertisers and professional publicists shape the news, and tilting the media even further in the service of the privileged few.

From the Publisher:

The dominance of corporate news media -- on the air and in print as well as the Internet -- means a narrowing of public discussion at a time when the number of news outlets has been proliferating at a rapid pace. Corporate sponsorship is homogenizing political commentary and tilting it increasingly toward one side, leaving roughly one-half of all Americans with less and less voice in the public forum.

If eternal vigilance is the price of liberty, then news representing a wide range of sources and interests is the prerequisite to that vigilance. Yet the news business prefers to analyze everything but its own responsibility to maintain an informed electorate so vital to a free society.

It doesn't have to be this way. Amidst his chronicle of the destruction of the news, the author lays out a serious challenge to the news business to exercise its responsibility as well as its freedom.

From the Author:

I wrote this book to sound an alarm about how journalistic irresponsibility is threatening our freedoms and our representative system of government. I issue a challenge to those in charge of the news business to take a serious look at what they are doing and report to the American people. It is time for those who monitor everything else to monitor themselves in a serious way before all is lost, including the press's own freedom.
