Journalism is an essential part of the democratic process. It is simultaneously a profit-making business, a form of entertainment, and a political institution with complex ties to the state and to other powerful political actors. We Keep America on Top of the World is Daniel Hallin's lucid dissection of American journalism, with particular emphasis on its most influential and controversial component - television news. Hallin approaches the study of broadcast news from many angles - comparative, historical, cultural and political-economic. His discussion encompasses wars in Vietnam and Central America, US-Soviet summits, the origin of the ten-second sound bite, the difference between print and television journalism, the increasingly blurred line between news and entertainment, and the tension between professionalism and populism. We Keep America on Top of the World offers a distinctive approach to understanding an institution torn between the imperatives of the market, political ideology and popular fashion, and journalistic professionalism.
