Publisher's Summary

From the explosion of fake news to the challenges of the 24-hour news cycle, legendary journalist Bob Schieffer examines political journalism today and those who practice it. Based on interviews with over 40 media leaders, Schieffer provides an inside look at the changing role of media and asks whether today's citizens are more informed or just overwhelmed.

Most Essential Read of 2017

This book is essential. If you’re frustrated at our current media landscape, this is a book for you. If you’re frustrated at the portrayal of outstanding media organizations by politicians who don’t want facts reported and would prefer coverage of the narratives they would like to peddle, this is a book for you. It’s fair and balanced (no really) and accurately covers existing media organizations and looks at their coverage historically but with a sharper lens on the historic and controversial 2016 Presidential Election. Please read this book.

Awful...or offal.

A short book padded with fluff by other people. The valuable content could have been covered in a thousand words. Most of the content isn’t Sheiffer’s. And the narrator frequently mispronounces words and names. Lousy.
