Main reading a newspaper as it burns

United States of Distraction

by Nolan Higdon Author, Mickey Huff Author and Ralph Nader Foreword

The role of news media has evolved more recently increasingly to profit the few, rather than to empower the many. Journalism's original role, to investigate, inform, and provide a crucial check on political power, has been compromised. United States of Distraction presents readers with a concise appraisal of our current situation and suggests action items for how to improve it.
