The future of media: resistance and reform in the 21st century
Co-edited by acclaimed media scholar Robert W. McChesney, the book features chapters by Bill Moyers, FCC Commissioner Michael Copps, Rep. Bernie Sanders, and Newspaper Guild president Linda Foley, among many others. With the American political landscape dominated by the influence of big business, the timing of The Future of Media could hardly be more precipitous. Endlessly pressured by lobbyists payrolled by corporate broadcasters, Congress is poised to reopen the 1996 Telecommunications Act, which will reshape every facet of our media as we know it for decades to come. Winners and losers are about to be decided, while at the same time new technologies are emerging which could truly revolutionize and democratize our media system-and our culture. From cutting edge analysis to blueprints for action, The Future of Media presents a diverse collection of voices from today's growing media reform movement.

Review: The Future of Media: Resistance and Reform in the 21st CenturyUser Review - Jess - Goodreads
I wish I could recommend this book to everyone I know. "Wish" because it might be a little too much for people, especially those who could care less about the crumbling of the free press. But once its gone, its gonna be missed. We won't know what to do with ourselves. Read full review
