(FYI: A reader would be better served reading Nick Schou's "Kill the Messenger" and "Into the Buzzsaw" then this book.) This author comes across as an honorable individual, giving us a modern historical account of leading to the demise or curtailment of their newspapers. But digging deeper, we observe that Judy Miller, when exposed at the NY Times for planted stories from Dick Cheney, ends up in a well-paying position at the Manhattan Institute, just as Tucker Carlton, who bombed on his radio-talk show, ends up as a paid fellow at the Cato Institute, just as the FBI liaison to the Warren Commission, ended up with a high-paying presidency of the Hoover Institute. A pattern in the media, and throughout the politico-government reportage scene, across many decades, points to a more insidious underlying agenda. (Add to that the number of times Leslie Stahl, Tom Brokaw, Dan Rather, Bill Moyers, and the other top names are observed dining and partying at those international financial forums; and lest we forget, Charlie Rose and his long time membership on David Rockefeller's Trilateral Commission?) And lest anyone forget, it was the passage of the "Telecommunications Act of 1996" signed into law by President Bill Clinton, which allowed this to happen (what the author is writing of) along with the reconstitution of a bigger and more powerful AT&T!
