Customer Review

on 30 October 2010
This is an excellent, if slightly hectoring account, of the myth of a free press. In a series of essays, leading journalists give accounts as to how big business and government determine what shall be in the news media and what shall be omitted.

Book was published in 2002, so it is a little bit dated.

I got my copy here in London, UK, on loan from the British Library. On the flyleaf are the words "Not for sale in the United Kingdom." Publishers are scared of the English libel laws. See, we can't even read about this here in England!
