Product Overview

The battle for the White House following the election of November 7, 2000, was one of the major media spectacles in American history. From the uncertainty of election night to Al Gore's concession to George W. Bush's acceptance of the mantle of president-elect, Douglas Kellner demonstrates why the media was culpable in the theft of the presidency, ultimately bringing to power one of the most right wing administrations in American history. By applying critical social theory, cultural studies, and media criticism to buttress his arguments, Kellner concludes that Election 2000 reveals a crisis in contemporary American democracy. A final chapter critically dissects the first 100 days of the Bush presidency, which is emerging as one of the most reactionary in history.
