Buffalo News Praises Schechter the News Dissector

In his recent article for the The Buffalo NewsMark Sommer discusses renowned journalist, blogger, and Cosimo author, Danny Schechter. Sommer explains that Schechter is a distinguished voice in the world of journalism not only because of his multiple platforms (blogs, news, documentaries, and books), but because of his unique perspective which offers a "counter-narrative" to the issues of the day.
In recent years, Schechter – dubbed “Danny Schechter the News Dissector" during his days as news director at WBCN in Boston, in the days of underground rock radio – has been a tireless voice for reform of Wall Street and corporate-owned media, subjects that figure heavily in his 15 books and 30 documentaries.
The former Emmy award-winning producer for ABC’s “20/20” has for the past 11 years also continued to present a counternarrative to the conventional wisdom of the day through a daily blog at
Cosimo is also excited to announce that Schechter's Occupy was listed as a getAbstract Best Book. also offers an extensive summary of the book online.

As you begin the new year, we encourage you to investigate new perspectives by looking into Schechter's most recent titles, Blogothon: Reflections and Revelations from the News Dissector and Occupy: Dissecting Occupy Wall Street
