Rate this:
James Bowman provides a scintillating and fast-paced anatomy of the mainstream media self-generated demise. The Mind of the Media looks behind the headlines to examine mainstream media's governing myths. Writing with acerbic wit, Bowman shows how the mainstream media's embrace of a spurious notion of objectivity, combined with its addiction to scandal, and an unshakable conviction of its own moral superiority have done irreparable damage to the media's public authority.

Tantalizing title but dreadful book. Inconsistent, foggy, vague, and works far too hard to connect media efforts and mistakes with obscure human imperfections. I am devoted to cursing and criticizing Western media but this book is so muddled that it neither helps the debate or kicks media when deserved. I have no idea who is the author or what his credentials might be. But his writing is simply useless and if he had an editor who could read, this book would never have made it into print. Non-fiction is a tricky area, full of bias and smackdowns on current topics. This guy seems to avoid being just another screamer - so he wrote inconclusively to avoid saying anything.
