To a large degree, our world is shaped by their commentaries on everything from war to health care and trade. Hidden Agendas is a noholds-barred expose of how reporters' opinions shape the information that we consider news. Focusing primarily on the political orientation of journalists, Miljan and Cooper investigate the link between what journalists believe about politics and how they report political issues. Using data gathered from interviews with over 800 Canadians and some 270 journalists, the book arrives at the controversial conclusion that journalists, more so than media owners, are the architects of news, engineering not only its drama but also its ideological thrust.
