The Habits of Highly Deceptive Media: Decoding Spin and Lies in Mainstream News

By: Norman Solomon

In this collection of courageously irreverent columns, critic Norman Solomon details the most recent excesses and failures of America’s self-censoring mainstream media. The “deceptions” of the media that he alludes to are not simply those that have to do with selectivity of sources or an obvious imbalance in the information offered but also those more clever forms of media distortion that derive from subtle shadings in the use of words, the preferential use of favorable modifiers, and the calculated instruments of denigration.
