Democracy without Journalism?

Confronting the Misinformation Society

Victor Pickard

  • The first scholarly book to historicize the current American journalism crisis and situate it within long-term structural problems that plague the entire commercial news industry
  • A timely intervention that brings normative questions about journalism's democratic imperatives back into focus and proposes structural alternatives to today's failing commercial news models
  • Scrutinizes major transformations in American journalism while offering policy proposals for creating a more democratic media system
