Media Concentration and Democracy: Why Ownership Matters by C. Edwin Baker

By C. Edwin Baker

Within the first bankruptcy, in just fifty-three exceptional pages, now we have a sweeping encyclopedic examine the problem, how the present empiric framing of the problem misses the purpose fullyyt, and a simple argument why we must always go back to a value-driven approach.

Unfortunately, the e-book doesn't finish after bankruptcy one.

Having already demolished the arguments of "the different aspect" via displaying the entire irrelevance in their underlying values, he feels pressured to respond to their each argument point-by-point. for that reason, he spends the following 100 and fifty pages going again over the cloth from the 1st fifty, exhaustively dismantling the statements of his opponents.

In this, he's way more gracious than I. From his rebuttals by myself - and the variety of occasions that he needs to explicitly indicate that the suitable wing's arguments thoroughly omit or obfuscate the purpose - it turns into visible that these he's arguing with have totally different goals.

I am reminded of the various instances i discovered myself debating creationists. instead of easily pointing out they had assorted ambitions (faith, no longer science), the main vocal creationists typically hire linguistic tips, logical-sounding dodges, and semantic good judgment traps. Their aim used to be - and nonetheless is - to not examine and try out principles, yet to catch the public's brain. Debate, in any case, is extra a degree of verbal process than a try of an idea's soundness.

C. Edwin Baker has it sounds as if now not discovered this, and believes that his rivals are nonetheless performing in reliable religion. for this reason, he needs to think that they're misinformed or incorrect, and so he rebuts all their issues. many times. He has many proof and ideal research on his aspect - however it is the sheer weight of either that's the book's downfall.
