Jeff Cohen and Norman Solomon draw their long knives again. Following the take-no-prisoners approach pioneered in their first two volumes, Adventures in Medialand and Through the Media Looking Glass, The Wizards of Media Oz cuts through media bias with scathing, sharp-witted, fun to read prose.

In these columns syndicated in over 20 newspapers nationwide, look out for what Molly Ivins terms "some of the best press-bashing, honest sleuthing found anywhere". Pandering to no sacred cows -- especially media cash cows -- The Wizards of Media Oz skewers the moneyed interests by exposing the facts behind the headlines.
