The media covers race
The media have ineffectively covered the issue of race in the US. They tend to cite a supposedly authentic black 'voice' and mistakenly suggest that that person's opinion is also held by all the blacks in the country. They also refuse to use the term 'black' in favor of 'African American' to avoid the ire of the most vocal citizens even though 'black' is actually non-offensive. Moreover, the media have tended to confuse race with class, failing to differentiate poor blacks from wealthy blacks, and to report on poor whites. These are just some of the complaints that can be made against the media.

Managing change: politicians and experts in the age of privatization
The classically liberal regimes that came to power in Britain and the US in the early 1980s pursued a policy of privatization based on free-market ideology. In alliance with this ideology, management classes asserted their professional status as a way of legitimizing their tutelary role in government. As public utilities were privatized, managers had a greater role than technical experts in setting policy.
