Are mass media endangering democracy? In their first co-authored book, RICHARD DAVID PRECHT and HARALD WELZER analyze the mechanisms of today’s media landscape and reveal an increasingly strong tendency towards bias, simplification, moralization and defamation. Their analysis: There is a difference between the published opinion and public opinion. The mass media are anxious about deviating from what rivals are saying and thus become echo chambers engaged in opinion-making. In THE FOURTH ESTATE, the two authors explore how a liberal democracy with a diverse media landscape can be putting itself in such jeopardy.
