Summary:

This groundbreaking investigative work by a critically acclaimed sociologist exposes the corporate takeover of local news and what it means for all Americans.

Early in the morning of January 18, 2002, a train derailment near Minot, North Dakota sent a cloud of poisonous gas drifting toward the small town. Minot's fire and rescue departments were unable to get word out by radio because Clear Channel, which is canned programming, operated all six radio stations. The result was one death and more than a thousand injuries.

Eric Klinenberg's Fighting for Air takes us into the world of preprogrammed radio shows, empty television news stations, and copycat newspapers to show how corporate ownership and control of local media undermines American political and cultural life.
