A large collection of articles touching on almost every aspect of media politics and power - from the rationale for public broadcasting to regulatory failure to concentration of ownership and flagrant media bias.
Public enterprise/economics
Mostly dealing with public enterprise, these economic commentaries give the lie to the dogmatic right-wing conventional wisdom denigrating crown ownership. Also covered: the attack on the public sector, the inflated image of stock markets, and much more.
Politics and history
Most items in this short section were written in the late 1970s and appeared on the Toronto Star’s editorial page. More relevant today, however, are the more recent pieces, especially on the federal and the B.C. NDP, although written a few years ago.
A short list of miscellany items, including “Uncivil Liberties,” on helping the mentally ill, perhaps the most important single article Herschel has ever written.
