‘Tyranny of the Press’
Posted On July 4, 2021
Quinnipac University Press has released a new edition of their popular book “The Tyranny of The Press” and it’s a good one.
The book is a must read for anyone interested in journalism, and the cover design is spot on.
This is not the cover for a mainstream publication.
It’s an actual cover for an actual mainstream publication that’s just a few inches bigger than the book.
Here’s the cover, which is one of the best covers I’ve seen in a while.
Here are some of the quotes from the book that stand out for me:The American press has been a “pale shadow of its former glory” for decades.
When you hear the phrase “The press is the enemy,” you might think it’s hyperbolic.
But this is not hyperbole.
The United States has a “very, very large” number of adversarial journalists, and they are a menace to the nation’s democracy.
This has been the case since the days of Franklin Delano Roosevelt, the most powerful man in American history.
The press is now the enemy of the people, and it will never go away.
A “journalism of the highest order” is in vogue.
The term is often used as a rallying cry for an “ideological crusade” in an effort to justify a new regime of authoritarian rule.
The American press is a political instrument, an instrument of the government, and an instrument for maintaining the status quo.
The press should be trusted and respected.
The media is an essential part of a democracy.
The American media, which has existed since the American Revolution, is the first institution of free expression in human history.
As long as this institution exists, freedom will prevail.
This truth is enshrined in the First Amendment of the Constitution.
The media is not just an institution, it’s the only institution that exists.
The First Amendment guarantees the right to freedom of speech and the press.
But that right is being threatened by the growing power of the media and the rise of a powerful and aggressive media-industrial complex.
