The Other Face of Public Television
Censoring the American DreameBook - 2002
Government and corporate interference have robbed the public of access to point-of-view programming. Through subterfuge, suppression of dissent and thought control, Washington (with eager assistance from Madison Avenue) has locked out the creatives and the educators — the people who fashion any culture's future. Drawing less on the public record and commentary, more on what actually happened during meetings and conversations (like hiring/firing sessions), the author demonstrates how the social forces spawned by developing economics and government in the U.S. have straitjacketed this instrument of freedom and democracy. Larger issues affecting all of society are an important part of the book's architecture.
