Dr. Robert Entman on American Media & Voters

Another addition to the Wish List. Professor Robert Entman of GWU likely has plenty to offer on a multiplicity of subjects yet if I understand a central premise of this book it is that a "vicious circle of interdependence" impacts both our media and citizens. "To become sophisticated ... Americans need high-quality, independent political journalism". However, to "stay in business while producing such journalism, news organizations would need an audience of sophisticated citizens". RIght now I'd argue the supply of either is very limited. Peace ... or War!
