The Return of the Moguls: How Jeff Bezos and John Henry Are Remaking Newspapers for the Twenty-First Century
Dan KennedyE-book: $24.99
Kennedy rightly suggests that quality journalism is not only salvageable, but necessary.
Kennedy collects insights from case studies of three American newspapers, arguing that wealthy, civic-minded owners are key to the survival of newspapers in America.
This analytical and predictive book will be of equal interest to lifetime consumers of printed news as well those more familiar with digital platforms.
Exhaustively researched and authoritatively written, The Return of the Moguls gives readers a bird’s-eye view and an important understanding of the ongoing efforts - ambitious and in some cases, downright courageous - to reconstruct that business model while introducing us to some of the key people engaged in that enterprise.
Dan Kennedy has written a fine book so we can inform ourselves about who is ultimately controlling the information upon which we all depend.
