Summary

"Written in the spirit of resistance and hope, United States of Distraction offers a clear, concise appraisal of our current situation, and presents readers with action items for how to improve it. "Mickey Huff and Nolan Higdon emphasize what we can do today," says Ralph Nader in the foreword, "to restore the power of facts, truth, and fair, inclusive journalism as tools for people to keep political and corporate power subordinate to the engaged citizenry and the common good.""--
