Read full description of the books:
Direct, concise, and revealing. I think Parenti along with Chomsky are required reading for those who consume US media. As a result of being published in 1986, much of the book deals with coverage of Soviet-US bipolarity, which is not as interesting today. The portion analyzing media coverage of US client states and of labor issues are as relevant as ever, though, and will give the reader good insight on current media coverage of Iran compared to Saudi Arabia, Israel, etc.
I have been around the block on American media studies and even I was stunned at how frequently that major US outlets suppressed or delayed stories that are damaging to the state. Parenti documents these quite well. And lest you think these incidents are relics of the manic Cold War climate, these things still happen today (see: the NYT's 13-month delay of Risen's and Lichtblau's story).
