The New York Times is possibly the most influential newspaper in the world. Because of this, it has become the topic of much debate about media bias, with some claiming that it is liberal and others that it is conservative. The Gatekeeper argues that this debate is misleading and that the New York Times can more accurately be characterised as supporting the interests of US corporations, which involves both liberal and conservative positions. Through examining the paper's coverage of key issues, including the 2008-2009 economic crisis, The Gatekeeper reframes the debate about the most venerable institution in US journalism.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Robert Chernomas and Ian Hudson had written one of the most sophisticated and original works of journalism criticism in years in The Gatekeeper. No one will ever view the New York Times or American journalism the same after reading this book. In view of the deep problems facing the U.S. and global economy our need for first-rate journalism has never been greater. Thanks to Chernomas and Hudson, we now know what to expect -- and not to expect-- from the New York Times, and why. This is going to be required reading for media critics, students, scholars and concerned citizens."
-Robert W. McChesney
