About This Book
More and more Americans are questioning the news media, so much so that news programs, such as The NBC Nightly News, have been prompted to turn the cameras on themselves. If the trend of news coverage for entertainment continues what will America be like in the future?
June, 2004 is new thriller based on today's headlines. John T. Retlin is America's new President, and he possesses unprecedented charisma and media appeal. So he is able to exert such influence over the TV news media and its corporate ownership that most Americans don't even notice our democracy slipping away.
The author explores the most troubling issues on Americans minds. Among them are increased voter apathy, a deteriorating political culture, the American obsession with and worship of celebrities, and the media's powerful influence in shaping public opinion.
