Guardians of Power: The Myth of the Liberal Media
Pluto Press, 2005
Can a corporate media system be expected to tell the truth about a world dominated by corporations?
Can newspapers tell the truth about catastrophic climate change - about its roots in mass consumerism and corporate obstructionism - when they are themselves profit-oriented businesses dependent on advertisers for 75 per cent of their revenues?
Can the BBC tell the truth about UK government crimes in Iraq when its senior managers are appointed by the government?
Why did the British and American mass media fail to challenge even the most obvious government lies on Iraqi weapons of mass destruction before the invasion in March 2003?
This book, including a foreword by John Pilger answers these questions, and more.
