In an accessible and robust polemic Harper shows why we must go beyond the left and embrace a communist critique of both the capitalist media's news agenda which disempowers and disinforms and the un-reformable system that shapes its ideological universe - the capitalist system itself. In this sense Harper's book is vulgar, unrealistic and deeply unfashionable: it is in short essential reading in an increasingly insane world. --(Mike Wayne, Professor of Screen Studies, Brunel University)
Stephen Harper cuts through mystifying accounts of the media with a steady hand, placing a real left politics firmly at the centre of any productive understanding of the daily circulation of casual idiocies and pernicious ideologies. --(Nina Power, Senior Lecturer in Philosophy, Roehampton University)
