Review of Our Media, Not Theirs: The Democratic Struggle Against Corporate Media, edited by Robert W. Mc Chesney and John Nichols
Review of Our Media, Not Theirs: The Democratic Struggle Against Corporate Media, edited by Robert W. Mc Chesney and John Nichols. Forewards by Noam Chomsky, Barbara Ehrenreich and Ralph Nader. New York: Seven Stories Press.
This book's messge has a salutary lesson for us in Oceania, half a globe away from the Anglo-American invasion of Iraq and its aftermath. Robert W. McChesney and John Nichols have argued for an honest debate over a total rethink of policy if the media is to continue to have an effective role in demoracy, if it is to remain a genuine Fourth Estate. They present a persuasive case for building a mass movement that seeks to replace their [coporate] media with a media that serves ordinary citizens—our media.
