Book review of News for All the People: The Epic Story of Race and the American Media - by Juan Gonzales

What a revelation! This is a monumental work which pulverizes our knowledge of American history, especially with regard to minority groups. Newspapers, radio and television outlets were (and are) systematically marginalized, ignored, bought out and even burned (our major news sources report such things only rarely, usually as some South American dictator's rampage). But very early on Native Americans had newspapers. So did Mexicans, and Chinese papers were published in California even before the first one in China. But these alternate takes on local and world events were suppressed, even to the point that local post offices destroyed the papers rather than deliver them to addressees, a wide-spread practice.


The struggle goes on today with mergers, news rooms with fewer and fewer minorities, fewer reporters actually investigating corruption. The FCC's political shenanigans are also exposed.


A recent study revealed that one who never watches or reads news is more apt to know what is going on in the world than one who listens to Fox news - this book explains why in a scholarly, well researched and engaging style ...


A truly exceptional book. Look for it at bookstores everywhere. A great gift for a serious reader!

I came to the Articles section of your postings to see if I could find Honor vs. Dignity. I didn't find that article, but I found this enlightening little review. I have never heard of those newspapers. But then, I have read about the history of yellow journalism and how it has shaped public opinion. I've also read about how William Randolph Hearst controlled the newspaper business in the early 20th century.

The finest article (and book) I have ever read on the subject:

Recent alarming news has it that the 1% are buying up all media sources at a rapid rate so that they can continue their propaganda by putting out only stories that are approved by conservative authority. They have already wrapped up Fox News. I was shocked to find out that Fox Television was allowing Cosmos to air on its channel. However, the episodes stopped after the brilliant description of global warming was presented by Neil Degrasse in the last episode. I see now that Cosmos has been nominated for several Emmy awards.

My sister must be getting all of her weird ideas by watching Fox 9 from Wausau Wisconsin. She turned up her nose at Cosmos after watching the first episode. She doesn't have cable and has limited air channels to watch. I have learned much from my travels, and eclectic reading like Playboy.

My friend Sha'Tara whose essays I post here at AD never follows the news on TV and never reads newspapers and yet seems to be quite aware of what is going on in the world. Thank you for sharing this review, Jansen. Love and peace,
