This acclaimed history -- chosen as one of the best books of 2011 by the Progressive magazine -- reveals how racial segregation distorted the information Americans have received from the mainstream media, even as it depicts the struggle of Black, Latino, Asian, and Native American journalists who fought to create a vibrant yet little-known alternative, democratic press. Written in an exciting, story-driven style and replete with memorable portraits of individual journalists and media executives, both famous and obscure, heroes and villains, News for All the People is destined to become the standard history of the American media." -- Back cover."@en ;
