A compilation of segments from 10 Paper Tiger Television programs with communications scholar and Paper Tiger patriarch, Herb Schiller. Watch classic moments in PTTV history as Schiller dissects the newspaper of record, exposing why certain news is “fit to print”. Schiller is the perfect blend of level-headed professorial presentation of the facts and the irreverent media industry myth smashing, a balance that is the hallmark of Paper Tiger productions. Schiller was an American media critic, sociologist, author, and scholar. He warned of two major trends in his prolific writings and speeches: the private takeover of public space and public institutions at home, and U.S. corporate domination of cultural life abroad, especially in the developing nations. His eight books and hundreds of articles in both scholarly and popular journals made him a key figure both in communication research and in the public debate over the role of the media in modern society.
