ElectionWatch ’04:
All the News That’s Fit to Buy

What we learn through the news media shapes how we choose our elected officials. In a democracy, we expect the media to serve the public interest. On this edition, we’ll take a look at how media companies have failed the public interest by influencing the political process. We’ll also hear from media critic and author Robert McChesney, who says the media’s complicity with the government impacts the health of democracy in the United States. – www.radioproject.org
