Product Details

This 2012 New York Times bestseller is a landmark narrative history of American media that puts race at the center of the story.

News for all the People is a sweeping account of the class and racial conflicts in American news media, from the first colonial newspaper to the Internet age. It chronicles key government decisions that created our nation’s system of news, major political battles over the role of the press, and the rise of media conglomerates and epoch-defining technologies. The book reveals how racial segregation in the media distorted the news and unearths numerous examples of how publishers and broadcasters actually fomented racial violence through their coverage. And it illuminates how Black, Latino, Asian, and Native American journalists fought to create a vibrant yet little-known alternative and democratic press and then, beginning in the 1970s, forced open the doors of the major media companies.
