Summary
Provides a critique and assessment of the media after 9/11. Includes web log entries, columns, and articles by correspondents and alternative journalists analyzing the events of 9/11 and the media's coverage of the U.S. government's war on terrorism. Stresses the lack of international coverage of the American media, examines the media distortion, oversimplification, and government propaganda as major roadblocks in accurate coverage of terrorism and war, and provides a thorough analysis of the news media and how 9/11 affected the content of broadcast and print news sources. Concludes that there is a lack of a truly free and independent press in America owing to government and corporate control
