Media critic and former CNN executive Steve Krakauer exposes the problems of a news industry filled with geographically isolated, introspection-free, egomaniacal journalists.

The fourth estate is supposed to be a conduit to the people and a check on power. Instead, we have a bunch of geographically isolated, introspection-free, cozy-with-power, egomaniacal journalists thirsty for elite approval.

No one understands these problems (and people) better than Steve Krakauer, one of America’s sharpest media critics. He has spent years getting to know some of the most influential players in the industry. This fascinating book is what he’s learned–and why every American should care.
