“Have We Lost the Battle? Can We Win? Does it Make a Difference?’

A close look at today’s journalism and the impact it has on the issues of the day. Does the ideological makeup of “America’s biased and abusive news media” mean all that much in the world of ideas and in the development of public policy? Can change come and how can we help make it happen? And how can we work with the media we have while helping to bring about some changes in its fundamental structure?
