Recognizing Canada's long-held reputation for producing high-quality media--from the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation and National Film Board documentaries to children's programming--this study reveals how recent funding cuts, commercial media concentration, and a sour political environment have been steadily eroding this notoriety. The book examines developments in film, television, the internet, and newspapers, demonstrating how the quality of Canada's news and entertainment media is steadily declining, becoming increasingly restricted, and gradually losing its diversity. The discussion emphasizes that living in the shadow of the United States makes the country particularly vulnerable, but Canada still produces distinctive and popular work that receives critical international acclaim despite it. Exploring all things related to Canadian media content, this argument contends that the country's people must reclaim the media from elite interests in order to ensure its democratic future.
