In A Red in the House, Stephen Fleischman tells of the political landmines in the mainstream media that marked the Cold War era.
"Although the Communist Party disintegrated out from under me in the mid-1950s, I found Marxism a valuable tool for analyzing the political and economic world around me.
During those thirty years, I worked with the best in mainstream broadcast journalism--Walter Cronkite, Ed Murrow, Fred Friendly, Dan Rather, Howard K. Smith, Eric Sevareid, Peter Jennings, Charles Kuralt, Harry Reasoner, Roone Arledge, Bill Redeker, Brit Hume, and more."
A Red in the House is replete with anecdotes and sidebar stories relating to the inner conflicts in the making of the TV news documentary.
A Red in the House portrays a graphic picture of how the mainstream media arrived at the sorry state it's in today. With five corporate media giants controlling most of what we see, hear and read, this story is even more relevant today.
