Media critic Norman Solomon has done it again. In this latest collection of columns, he details the most recent excesses and failures of America's self-censoring mainstream media, and brings you the real story on issues like:
*The irony of the Zippergate President preaching abstinence to poor women and putting millions of dollars into "chastity education" programs
*The Orwellian logic behind calling bombings by Third World countries "terrorism," while similar bombings by the US are righteous "strikes against terror"
*"Media Scenes We'd Like to See" -- fantasies as appealing as they are unlikely, which include a vision of Dan Rather, Tom Brokaw and Peter Jennings donating their fortunes to a trust fund for independent journalism and vowing to tell the truth even it gets them fired.
From the relentless pro-corporate spin of daily news to the media's persistent lack of diversity, Solomon covers it all.
