Progressive Perspectives presents
Robert McChesney & John Nichols
discussing their new book
The Death and Life of American Journalism:
The Media Revolution that
Will Begin the World Again
"Communities across America are su#ering through a crisis that could leave a dramatically diminished version of democracy in its wake… Journalism is collapsing, and with it comes the most serious threat in our lifetimes to selfgovernment and the rule of law in the United States… Unless we rethink alternatives and reforms, the media will continue to fail until journalism is all but extinguished."
Robert McChesney is author/editor of sixteen books on the media. He holds an endowed professorship in communications studies at the University of Illinois.
John Nichols is Washington correspondent for The Nation and is one of America's leading progressive political journalists.
McChesney and Nichols are co-founders of Free Press, America's leading media reform organization and organizer of the National Media Reform Conference.
