About this book

Examining essential aspects of American life, John Budd investigates how informational sources (print and broadcast media and other resources) fall short when it comes to informing citizens, failing our democracy and damaging the public good.

Reviews

"John M. Budd's volume addresses a very ambitious and timely topic: the relationships between democratic processes, capitalism, the public good, and the role that information sources have to play in these relationships. The chapters are erudite, well researched, clearly written, and combine the works of great social theorists with contemporary examples." - Gary P. Radford, Professor of Communication Studies, Fairleigh Dickinson University, USA
