Editorial Reviews


“From ‘he-media’ to ‘we-media,’ Van Slyke and Clark document the shift from a media universe dominated by a few grim men to one in which progressive media can experiment, collaborate, report, and have real impact.”
— Laura Flanders, Host of GRITtv and author of Blue Grit

Beyond the Echo Chamber tells one of the great untold stories of this decade: the evolution of an entirely new (and newly powerful) progressive media. . . . It’s a must read for media practitioners, consumers, and progressives of all stripes.”
— Christopher Hayes, Washington editor of The Nation and a fellow at the New America Foundation

“[This book] takes us beyond the usual ideas about political media, message, and movement building . . . empowering people to break out of conventional wisdom about politics and media and really start making their own change.”
— Mike Lux, co-founder and CEO, Progressive Strategies

“An inspiring inside guide—as current as this morning’s blog post—to progressive media successes in the Net era: exposing corruption, slaying politicians, activating communities, moving Congress, turning elections.”
— Jeff Cohen, director of the Park Center for Independent Media at Ithaca College

From the Publisher

A concise, paradigm-shifting strategy guide to achieving political impact via the progressive media

Format: Paperback
Beyond the Echo Chamber: Reshaping Politics Through Networked Progressive Media offers a fine vision for turning old strategies into models for the future, drawing from various sources to feature case studies on influential social change projects, from Brave New Films to Feministing. Journalists, bloggers and readers have changed media, politics and social opinion: this documents their power and is a 'must' for any social issues library.

Excellent book with research based, actionable steps for digital advocacy. I had the opportunity to participate in the Newseum Conference "Digital Advocacy In The Internet Age" at the Newseum. This book was the best "takeaway" from the event. "In less than a decade, a new breed of networked progressive (citizen journalists) will engage millions of reader participants". Case reviews and trend analysis of Brave New Films, Talking Points Memo, Feminnisting.
