The Decline and Fall of Public Broadcasting by David Barsamian Foreword by Amy Goodman Afterword by Mumia Abu-Jamal

The Decline and Fall of Public Broadcasting by David Barsamian Foreword by Amy Goodman Afterword by Mumia Abu-Jamal

Public broadcasting increasingly reflects the mentality of corporate America, offering a spectrum of views “from A to B, from GE to GM," writes journalist David Barsamian. At the same time, concentration of the for-profit media has reached new heights, making it even more difficult for
alternative voices to gain a hearing.

In The Decline and Fall of Public Broadcasting, Barsamian draws on his years of experience in public radio, and gives an insider’s perspective on public broadcasting in the U.S., as well as the challenges faced by new media activists who are working to create more democratic, informative, and engaging media.

David Barsamian lives in Boulder, Colorado, and is the producer of the award-winning syndicated radio program Alternative Radio. Ben Bagdikian, Pulitzer Prize winner and author of The Media Monopoly, calls Alternative Radio "an essential service for the communication needs of a democratic society."

Barsamian's interview books feature conversations with luminaries such as Noam Chomsky, Howard Zinn, and Edward Said. A regular contributor to The Progressive and Z Magazine, Barsamian's most recent interview books include
Propaganda and the Public Mind and Eqbal Ahmad: Confronting Empire, both from South End Press.
