In this book the author ".... warns that the American media threaten our ability to understand the world around us. Why do the media cover the world in the way that they do? Are they simply following the marketplace demand for tabloid-style international news? Or are they creating an audience that has seen too much -- or too little -- to care? Through a series of case studies of the "The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse" -- disease, famine, war and death -- Moeller investigates how newspapers, and news magazines and television have covered international crisis over the last two decades, is identifying the rights into which the media have fallen and revealing why." -- from the rear panel blurb.
