In my honest opinion, literature that covers the inner-workings of politics and the American government can be incredibly dry. This work is no exception to the rule. Although, however dated it may seem from ending at the election of Clinton in '92, it also level of propheticalness about the role of the media in politics. The transition from from objective to subjective journalism is documented fairly well.

Great analysis of the influence of media on American politics. Examples focus on politics of presidential campaigns and elections. One of the better looks at politics and media. Patterson is a well known and respected political scientist and author.
