Abstract

Extract:
Michael Schudson's Why Democracies Need an Unlovable Press is a collection of essays focusing on the interplay between journalism and democracy. He explores the concept that although the press are often dismissed for being sensationalists only looking to selfishly make a name for themselves or to help rake in advertising dollars, they can and do play a significant, although imperfect, role in a Western-style democracy.
