GHOSTING THE NEWS Local Journalism and the Crisis of American Democracy

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Amanda Carlin

Contemporary Culture • 3 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2020

Listening to this book, one might think narrator Amanda Carlin is the author. Her narration is filled with the emotion and emphasis the author brought to the work. She stresses the important points without sounding strident and largely overcomes the fact that this book was written for the eye, not the ear. She breaks complex sentences into easier to comprehend segments without damaging their meaning or continuity. The foundation of the work is the author's experience in daily newspaper journalism, and she presents a compelling case for the continued survival of local daily newspapers if the public is to have a clear view of local government's actions and operations. Without independent oversight, government cannot be held accountable to taxpayers. R.C.G. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2020, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 2020]
