Download Media Concentration and Democracy: Why Ownership Matters by C. Edwin Baker PDF

By C. Edwin Baker

Within the first bankruptcy, in just fifty-three remarkable pages, now we have a sweeping encyclopedic examine the difficulty, how the present empiric framing of the problem misses the purpose completely, and a simple argument why we should always go back to a value-driven approach.

Unfortunately, the e-book doesn't finish after bankruptcy one.

Having already demolished the arguments of "the different facet" by way of exhibiting the total irrelevance in their underlying values, he feels forced to reply to their each argument point-by-point. for that reason, he spends the following 100 and fifty pages going again over the fabric from the 1st fifty, exhaustively dismantling the statements of his opponents.

In this, he's way more gracious than I. From his rebuttals by myself - and the variety of instances that he needs to explicitly indicate that the fitting wing's arguments thoroughly leave out or obfuscate the purpose - it turns into noticeable that these he's arguing with have totally different goals.

I am reminded of the numerous occasions i discovered myself debating creationists. instead of easily declaring they'd various pursuits (faith, no longer science), the main vocal creationists usually hire linguistic methods, logical-sounding dodges, and semantic good judgment traps. Their target used to be - and nonetheless is - to not examine and attempt principles, yet to trap the public's brain. Debate, finally, is extra a degree of verbal approach than a try of an idea's soundness.

C. Edwin Baker has it seems that now not realized this, and believes that his competitors are nonetheless appearing in reliable religion. for that reason, he needs to think that they're misinformed or fallacious, and so he rebuts all their issues. again and again. He has many evidence and ideal research on his facet - however it is the sheer weight of either that's the book's downfall.
