This book is a must read for aspiring journalists and for people who are interested in keeping the U.S. a free, democratic country. These essays by award-winning investigative journalists and news anchors point out how the media moguls control what is news and what is not. The lament several of the authors have is the lack of gumption to go against the grain. Too many reporters and journalists are willing to accept the data sheets provided by both government and corporations rather than do any investigating themselves. The media corporations are more worried about profit than truth. This is perhaps most clearly shown in the actions of international news organization CNN. In the last essay Robert McChesney reports that CNN (the most trusted name in news) broadcast two different versions of the War in Iraq, one was for its international audience the other for domestic consumption. With the consolidation of media outlets into fewer and fewer corporations (conglomerates) we find that the coverage or lack of coverage of certain events and issues are based not on truth but the bottom-line.
