This segment of GLOBAL IMPACT features Robert W. McChesney, a renowned expert on media analysis who is the Gutgsell Endowed Professor in the Department of Communication at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. We will be discussing his dynamic book "THE POLITICAL ECONOMY of MEDIA" and his critical perspectives on how the media impacts public opinion. His book "THE POLITICAL ECONOMY of MEDIA" demonstrates the incompatibility of the corporate media system with a viable democratic public sphere, and the corrupt policy making process that brings the system into existence. The book provides a comprehensive critique of the degradation of journalism, the hyper-commercialization of culture, the Internet, and the emergence of the contemporary media reform movement. This segment of GLOBAL IMPACT is mandatory for anyone seeking to understand and change media, and the political economy, in the world today.
