BEN BAGDIKIAN MEDIA MONOPOLY PDF

August 10, I really shouldn't like this book - it's marred by bias, polemics, and inaccuracies, and much of the evidence the author marshals to prove his case is several years old. But I do like it, because it's a groundbreaking work that charts a historic shift in the orientation of the majority of America's communications media - further away from the needs of the individual and closer to those of big business. It also provides a hard-to-find overview of the important ways our sources of information have changed during this century. And, above all, it is a book that could broaden public understanding of a key issue: why so many US voters, awash in ''information age'' data, actually feel ill-informed and apathetic about their choices in the democratic process.
