“No one has studied the press and the woeful state of public knowledge more carefully than Patterson. In this important new work, he moves from analysis to recommendation, proposing a new model for a press that actually lives up to its democratic potential.” –Clay Shirky, Associate Professor Journalism, New York University and author of Cognitive Surplus: Creativity and Generosity in a Connected Age

“Patterson delivers an impressive evaluation of a crisis he identifies as just as bad, if not worse, than that associated with the ‘yellow journalism’ of the early 1900s. . . . A well-organized and detailed book that underlines the need for remedial policy action and effective oversight.” —Kirkus Reviews
