Summary
"Drive-By Journalism raises a question whose answer may well determine the shape of American democracy in the 21st century. Has the Internet created a new form of corporate media with unparalleled political power? Veteran journalist Arthur E. Rowse provides a stellar argument that the forces propelling their ascendance were at work long before the advent of the Internet." "In a step-by-step dissection of key takeovers of the media by corporate interests, Rowse reveals how the search for profit has obliterated any pretense to the search for truth in the news."--BOOK JACKET
