Product Overview

Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Alex S. Jones explores how the epochal changes sweeping the media have eroded the core news that has been the essential food supply of our democracy. At a time of dazzling technological innovation, Jones says that what stands to be lost is the fact-based reporting that serves as a watchdog over government, holds the powerful accountable, and gives citizens what they need. In a tumultuous new media era, with cutthroat competition and panic over profits, the commitment of the traditional news media to serious news is fading. Should we lose a critical mass of this news, our democracy will weaken--and possibly even begin to fail. This book is also a call to arms. Despite the current crisis, there are many hopeful signs, and Jones closes by looking over the horizon and exploring ways the iron core can be preserved.--From publisher description. *Author: Jones, Alex S. *Series Title: Institutions of American Democracy *Subtitle: The Future of the News That Feeds Democracy *Publication Date: 2009/09/02 *Number of Pages: 234 *Binding Type: Hardcover *Language: English *Depth: 1.00 *Width: 5.75 *Height: 8.50
