Summary
"The Rise and Fall of the Media Establishment provides an overview of the media in various key stages of American history, paying particular attention to the media elite's rise and fall in influence. Arguing against prevailing wisdom that the media's influence has increased in the past decade, West cites current research and carefully selected case studies to support his controversial thesis."--Jacket
