Bettig and Hall present a lively and scathing critique of the contemporary communications industry. They explore recent news events and challenges posed by the Internet and the effects of copyright control, as well as growing corporate influence in the newsroom and the classroom. The authors conclude that current interconnections among media, big business, government, and education reflect capitalism’s trend of concentration of wealth and power-posing a serious threat to democratic communications.
