Abstract:

Americans have had enough. People in social networks are smashing the walls of partisan politics and traditional journalism--and things will never be the same. As the first national news anchor to combine traditional network news with the power of social-networking tools like Twitter, MySpace, and Facebook, CNN's Rick Sanchez doesn't just talk to Americans--he hears directly from them, unfiltered, every day. As Rick says, "It wasn't me talking. It was *we* talking." Viewers tweet at Rick daily, so he knows they are sick of "conventional idiocy" like death panels, birthers, and blind partisanship.--From publisher description.
