Corporate Media and the Threat to Democracy
by Robert McChesney
In this concise pamphlet, media scholar Robert W. McChesney “sound[s] a compelling warning that corporate control of the mass media has made ominous inroads into our democracy” (Ben Bagdikian).
– In These Times
“McChesney’s work has been of extraordinary importance … It should be read with care and concern by people who care about freedom and basic rights.”
– Noam Chomsky
“In this passionate and strikingly lucid essay, Robert McChesney makes clear why all of us should be alarmed about the effects of media mergers on the future of American democracy. This is a must reading for anyone who wants to get a quick understanding of this troubling trend.”
– Susan J. Douglas, author of Growing Up Female with the Mass Media
