If the American people collectively will suffer when independent journalism disappears, should Federal money be spent to save it?  John Nichols of The Nation magazine and media critic Robert McChesney lay out their multi-billion dollar plan to resuscitate the American press in their new book The Death and Life of American Journalism: The Media Revolution That Will Begin the World Again. Then, entertainment critic David Kipen discusses new titles at the movies and recommends some of his favorite sports-themed literature.
