Unreliable Sources: A Guide to Detecting Bias in the News Media

By: Martin Lee & Norman Solomon

A vital handbook for deciphering widespread media bias, Unreliable Sources dissects news coverage of a wide range of issues–taxes, the Persian Gulf, social security, abortion, drugs, environmental pollution, US-Soviet relations, terrorism, and the Third World–and exposes the key stories that have been censored or glossed over by major media. Citing the reluctance of newspapers and TV networks to present dissenting views on military spending, environmental pollution, economic policies that frustrate blacks and Hispanics, and American gunboat diplomacy in Latin America, Lee and Solomon make a compelling case for their contention that the media have become spokespeople for the American business establishment.
