The New Blue Media
How Michael Moore, MoveOn.org, Jon Stewart and Company Are Transforming Progressive PoliticsBook - 2008
Is a new progressive era in American life in the offing? Only time will tell, but journalist Theodore Hamm suggests that a new progressive media has already arrived. Satirical, hard- charging and unapologetically progressive, this new media movement is both reinvigorating old forms like late-night TV and documentaries, and inventing new forms like the blogosphere. In a breezy, accessible style, Hamm traces the rise during the Bush years of new media stars: the news-saturated satire of The Onion, The Daily Show and Michael Moore.
