SUMMARY

An 'admirably researched and lucidly written' investigation of the corporate takeover of the media-and what it means for Americans -that 'should serve as a wake-up call' (Daniel Schorr, NPR) For the residents of Minot, North Dakota, Clear Channel Communications is synonymous with disaster. When a train derailment sent a cloud of poisonous gas drifting toward the small town, Minot's fire and rescue departments attempted to use local radio to warn residents of the approaching threat. But in the age of canned programming, there was no one at the six local non-religious commercial stations, all owned by Clear Channel, to take the call. The result for the people of Minot: one death and more than a thousand injuries. Opening with the story of the Minot tragedy, Fighting for Air takes us into the world of preprogrammed radio shows, empty television news stations, and copycat newspapers to show how expanding conglomerate ownership of all media has harmed American political and cultural life-and how malign neglect by the federal government allowed it to happen. In a call for action, Fighting for Air also reveals a rising generation of activists and citizen journalists who are insisting on the local coverage we need and deserve.Klinenberg, Eric is the author of 'Fighting for Air: The Battle to Control America's Media', published 2008 under ISBN 9780805087291 and ISBN 080508729X.
