Out Of Focus:
Network Television and the American Economy
by Burton Yale Pines with Timothy W. Lamer
Tell a friend about this site

Out of FocusTelevision is the most influential medium in the history of mankind. More Americans own a TV than have telephones or indoor plumbing.

What Americans watch on the ‘tube’ is what Americans, to a significant extent, learn about life, their society and their nation.

In Out of Focus: Network Television and the American Economy, Pines and Lamer examine TV’s accuracy in portraying the American economy. What they find is disturbing.

The authors show that what viewers see on TV is the American free-enterprise system distorted into a tale of catastrophes, bankruptcies, fraud and ineptitude, populated by white businessmen who are criminals, and consumers who are stupid, gullible and powerless.
