Publisher's Synopsis

"One of America's most experienced and exemplary journalists has written an unsparing analysis of the dreadful consequences -- for journalism and the nation -- of 'how the news lost a race to the bottom with itself.'" -- George F. Will

In this national bestseller, Chris Stirewalt, a former Fox News political editor, takes readers inside America's broken newsrooms that have succumbed to the temptation of "rage revenue."

One of America's sharpest political analysts, Stirewalt employs his trademark wit and insight to reveal how these media organizations slant coverage - and why that drives political division and rewards outrageous conduct. The New York Times wrote that Stirewalt's book "is an often candid reflection on the state of political journalism and his time at Fox News, where such post-mortem assessments are not common..."

Broken News is a fascinating, deeply researched, conversation-provoking study of how the news is made and how it must be repaired. Stirewalt goes deep inside the history of the industry to explain how today's media divides America for profit. And he offers practical advice for how readers, listeners, and viewers can (and should) become better news consumers for the sake of the republic.
