Here, MediaChannel founder and editor, Danny Schechter, "the News Dissector", critically examines media coverage since September 11.

Schechter analyses what has been covered and, more tellingly, left out, in news coverage of the terrorist attacks and their aftermath.

Drawing from the reporting of over 1000 worldwide radio, newspaper, television and Internet affiliates, the result is a scathing account of how the media has become a megaphone for the US military and its war on terror.

More than just a critique, Schechter suggests a series of changes to improve our news sources and return them to the vital role a free and independent press must play to preserve a democracy.
