Newsless: How the American Media Is Destroying Democracy
CreateSpace Independent Publishing Platform, Aug 19, 2009 - Social Science - 156 pages
Newsless looks at a variety of television and Internet news outlets to determine the state of America's news. Documented throughout, it reveals three distinct types of media organizations, all of which claim to offer objective, comprehensive news: personal-interest-focused social media that focus on celebrity scandal as news, 24-hour news conglomerates that invent crises to lure audience members and advertisers, and true news organizations that frame the news in a global knowledge context.Newsless gives a concise yet thorough review of these media organizations' strategies and the widespread differences in what they consider to be news. Without placing blame or highlighting political agendas, Newsless engages the reader in critical thought - something many media organizations forgo in their reporting styles.
