Description - We the Media by Don Hazen

Filled with up-to-the-minute facts, figures, and commentary, the book features over 100 of the leading journalists, media critics, and experts in the country on: who owns and controls the media; how the rapidly expanding empires of Disney, Time Warner, Rupert Murdoch's NewsCorp, and other media conglomerates affect what you see, hear and read; how political considerations and the radical right influence what gets on the air and who gets left out of the picture; and how advertising pervades virtually every second of your life. We the Media also highlights the alternatives - organizations, leaders, and the media makers who are successfully fighting the conglomerates and demanding that media and democracy go together. Our media system has been transformed and our lives will be changed in ways we don't even know yet. But we can do something about it. We the Media is a survival guide to navigating the brave new media landscape.
