Item description for Liberty and the News by Walter Lippmann...

In this forthright critique of the press as a threat to American democracy and a danger to the value of liberty at large, Lippman asserts the central, indispensable connection between liberty and truth. Taking aim at the press, Lippman denounces its propensity to promote its own agendas and purposes rather than promulgate the truthful exchange of facts and the free flow of ideas.

Liberty and the News is a masterful portrayal of a problem still highly relevant today. Lippman's insights and vision for a better way to disseminate the news are highly eluminating.

The Creation of Independent Information....  Jan 20, 2008
This is a short book reissued by the Princeton University Press 88 years after its original publication.
Lippmann argues for information that is honest, not created out of dishonesty and untruth. In current day terms, Lippmann favors information without spin. He argues also for journalism and journalists to be professional, and for the information they dispense to be fact, not fiction.

A fiery afterword by journalist and former White House adviser, Sidney Blumenthal, derides journalism and its failures during the White House administration of George W. Bush.
