Editorial Reviews

Review

Cromwell displays his unbending commitment to follow the facts wherever they lead. Asks the questions about OUR leaders that polite society and the mainstream media will not go near. An indispensable tool of intellectual self defence.
--David Miller, coauthor of A Century of Spin, cofounder of Spinwatch, Professor of Sociology at the University of Bath UK


One of the beacons in a politically dark world is the light cast by a moral few who analyse and reveal how journalism works in the cause of power. David Cromwell has pride of place in this company. Every member of the public and every journalist with an ounce of scepticism about authority should read his outstanding book.
--John Pilger, journalist and documentary maker

Mr. Cromwell's book provides a strikingly accurate and frightening portrayal of the propaganda function of mainstream corporate media not only in the UK but in the US as well. However, the richness of Mr. Cromwell's book goes far beyond that. This book is a delightful mix of excellent storytelling and essential information with notable hints of Erich Fromm and high notes of the Dalai Lama. And not to be missed is the treasure trove of a bibliography at the end of this delightful yet scary read. I highly recommend this book!

A good expose of how morally corrupt, and criminal western governments are. While those same governments persuade their populations that their warmonging and racist policies are essential, in order to protect our "interests", this book shows that the real issues that threaten us all, such as climate change are ignored. This book is an important reality check, for us all.

Format: Paperback
This is an excellent book about how the media misrepresents what is going on in the world. I'd thoroughly recommend it as reading for anyone who buys a newspaper or watches the TV news and thinks they are informing themselves about the world and how it works. Mark Twain said: Those who don't read newspapers are uninformed, those who do are ill-informed. Mr Cromwell's book illustrates why this is just as apt a sentiment today as it was in Mr Twain's times.
