Foreword by Barbara Ehrenreich The corporate grip on the US media system means that journalism often parrots the views of those in power, and hypercommercialism puts profit above all else. The revised, updated and expanded edition of the now sold-out It's the Media, Stupid! chronicles the recent dramatic developments in media activism in the US and world-wide. Critiquing the US media system, the authors examine alternatives at work in other countries, and conclude with a proposal for meaningfully improving American media.
