In his recent article for the The Buffalo News, Mark 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.Cosimo is also excited to announce that Schechter's Occupy was listed as a getAbstract Best Book. getAbstract.com also offers an extensive summary of the book online.
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 www.newsdissector.net.
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.
