Summary

This new book examines whether television can be used as a tool not just for capitalism, but for democracy. Throughout television's history, activists have attempted to access it for that very reason. New technologies--cable, satellite, and the internet--provided brief openings for amateur and activist engagement with television. This book elaborates on this history by using ethnographic data to build a new iteration of liberalism, technoliberalism, which sees Silicon Valley technology and the free market of Hollywood end the need for a politics of participation.
