    One thought on “No News is Bad News: Canada’s Media Collapse—and What Comes Next”

    1. The only thing I wish this book had done differently is tell me what I could do personally to help the problem. It gave tons of ideas for how people with millions of dollars to donate could help, but not University students or even just regular working-class people. This book made me want to create positive change, but didn't tell me how. That being said, I learned so much and really enjoyed the writing of this book. Very well done and thoroughly researched.

    2. A very interesting (and slightly distressing) book about Canada's news. Why we don't get the truth, or even half the truth, who's running what and why it's a dying art in this country. Ian Gill gives an amazing incite into an industry that we, as Canadians and First Worlders take for granted. The writing can be a little dry at times, but this book reads like an expose and you won't want to put it down.

    3. The author hits the right argument but is a tad too concerned with the odd insult here and there which sometimes spoils a good point. A good quick read that should raise alarm bells for anyone wondering why the news has gone away.
