Summary
This book explores the crucial question of what is responsible for the upheaval in the media we used to rely on to inform us about public affairs. Veteran editor and newspaperman Jack fuller locates the sources of change: in the collision between a revolutionary new information age and a human brain that is still wired for the threats faced by our prehistoric ancestors. This book not only offers unprecedented insight into the causes of change but also clear guidance, strongly rooted in the precepts of ethical journalism, on how journalists can adapt to this new environment while still providing the information necessary to a functioning democracy.--[book jacket]
