Bad News: How America's Business Press Missed the Story of the Century
The New Press, 2010. 12. 7. - 242페이지
Leading scholars and journalists assess the media’s failure to see the financial crisis coming. “A sort of All the President’s Men for our time” (Kirkus Reviews).
Where was the business press in the weeks and months leading up to the deepest financial crisis since the Great Depression? As our economy unraveled, journalists struggled to keep up with the story of the century, grappling with an alphabet soup of derivatives, backroom deals, and toxic financial instruments. But many fault the media itself for having helped to create the bubble in the first place. Did the press fail its mandate as an engine of truth by buying into the hubris and exuberance of the preceding decades?
Bad News is a foundational text for navigating a controversy that will be studied for years to come. With contributions from leading journalists and academics—including Nobel Laureate Joseph Stiglitz, International Consortium of Investigative Journalists’ senior editor Dean Starkman, and the New York Times’ European economics correspondent Peter S. Goodman—this collection presents a complex debate in a highly accessible format for anyone from curious readers and scholars to journalists themselves. And ultimately, the questions it raises illuminate the heated debate about the media’s role as guardians of our democracy.
“There are three 24-hour financial networks. All their slogans are like, ‘We know what’s going on on Wall Street.’ But then you turn it on during the crisis, and they’re like, ‘We don’t know what’s going on.’ It’d be like turning on the Weather Channel in a hurricane and they’re just doing this: [shuddering] ‘Why am I wet?! What’s happening to me? And it’s so windy!’” —Jon Stewart
“Thorough, hard-hitting, and admirably balanced.” —James Ledbetter, editor in charge, Reuters
