Auteur: Nichols, John & Robert W. McChesney
Titel: Tragedy and farce
Sub titel: How the American media sell wars, Spin Elections, and Destroy Democracy
`Tragedy and Farce' dissects the media failures of recent years and show how they expose the decline in resources and standards for political journalism--as well as the methodical campaign by the political right to control the news cycle. In our highly concentrated media system it has become commercially and politically irrational to do the kind of journalism a self-governing society requires. John Nichols and Robert McChesney--two of the country's leading media analysts--argue that during the 2004 election and throughout the Iraq war and occupation, Americans have been starved of democracy's oxygen: accurate information. More than anything John Kerry, George Bush, or even Karl Rove did, the media's mis-coverage of the campaign and war decided the election. Most disturbingly, the flawed coverage reflects new, structural problems within U.S. journalism.
