Controlling the Internet
A must read for anyone who wants to know about the "media in America," the role of the U.S. government, and how the media intersects with Race and Ethnicity. This video is from Democracy Now - Amy Goodman is interviewing Juan Gonzalez regarding his book, News for All the People.
After seven years of research, the groundbreaking new book, "News for
All the People: The Epic Story of Race and the American Media," examines
how the media has played a pivotal role in perpetuating racist views in
the United States. It recalls lives of the unsung pioneering black,
Latino, Native American and Asian-American journalists who challenged

the technologies used to deliver it — in a democracy. MORE
