   schema:reviewBody ""Rupert Murdoch's recent multibillion-dollar purchase of The Wall Street Journal made international news. Yet it is but one more chapter in an untold story: the creation of a conservative media echo chamber. The Journal's conservative editorial page served as the foundation, and it became increasingly insular with the rise of Rush Limbaugh in the 1980s." "Now Kathleen Hall Jamieson and Joseph Cappella - two of the nation's foremost experts on American politics - offer a provocative analysis of the conservative media establishment, from talk radio to Fox News to the editorial page of The Wall Street Journal. Discussing a broad range of controversial political battles from recent times, this is the first serious account of how an integrated conservative media arose, what it consists of, and how it operates. Indicative is the uproar that followed when Senator Trent Lott seemed to endorse Strom Thurmond's segregationist past. Limbaugh called the remarks "utterly indefensible," but added that a "double standard" was in play. That signaled a broad counterattack by the conservative media establishment, charging the mainstream media with hypocrisy (yet using its reports when convenient), creating an alternative knowledge base for partisans to draw upon, and fostering an in-group identity. By carefully analyzing such cases, Jamieson and Cappella uncover how Limbaugh, Fox News, and the Wall Street Journal opinion page created a self-protective enclave for conservatives, shielding them from other information sources and promoting strongly negative associations with political opponents."--Jacket." ;
