Conflicting Communication Interests in America: The Case of National Public Radio
Greenwood Publishing Group, 1999 - 210 páginas
Beginning with a description of the events that led to the creation of National Public Radio, McCourt discusses the relationship between NPR and its affiliate stations and the ways in which struggles over funding and programming have affected public radio's agenda. He also examines how public radio incorporates the roles of public representatives into its operations and how its methods to determine the needs and interests of the public have changed across the system's history. The social, political, and economic pressures that have impacted the mission and practices of National Public Radio, McCourt asserts, are manifest in all areas of American life. Through extensive historical research, he examines whether American public broadcasters, as represented by NPR, have succeeded or failed to engender an enlightened, participatory democracy.

This book did not deserve one star. I forced to give it such a high rating due to the problem that rating a book with 0 stars is not possible. It clearly is not worth its price. I will not recommend this book to anyone. I am quite angry that I wasted my money on this rubbish.
