News Dissector and Network Veteran Danny Schechter Explores How We Can For Truth Against The Global Media Goliath. Going Beyond "The More You Watch The Less You Know (1997), He Offers a Media Insider's Proposals for Reform and Accountability. With original essays written for this collection, and drawn from earlier books, blogs and reports, he draws on extensive experience worldwide, in print and TV journalism, as an independent and network professional. This is an informed perspective on how the media world really works, and why it often works to undermine democracy rather then strengthen it. It offers the perspectives of a hard-hitting analyst and activist, gleaned from a lifetime of media engagement, drawing on his personal involvement in politics, civil rights struggles and the fight to free South Africa. He focuses on the coverage of war partly because of his reporting from Vietnam and other conflict zones. He has written 13 books, makes films, appears as a TV commentator, blogs on NewsDissector.net and writes regularly for AlJazeera.com.
