Anderson and Adam Thierer boldly refute the abusive
agenda of "neutralized" networks, forced "fairness,"
and campaign-finance pettifoggery that threatens to
role back the Internet age. An imperative read for all
supporters of the new cornucopian media."

"Brian Anderson and Adam Thierer have written an important book about
the future of media freedom and why we must be vigilant in defending
that freedom against unjust and undemocratic regulatory proposals like
the Fairness Doctrine. This timely and concise manifesto serves as a
rallying cry for that cause."
Congressman Mike Pence, Indiana
"Brian Anderson is that rare analyst who has conducted scholarly research,
edits a distinguished Old Media public policy journal, but has also written extensively on
the importance of New Media and pop culture. He and Adam Thierer were among the first to
grasp how the New Media was reshaping politics and cultural attitudes. That makes
them especially qualified to now warn about the dangers that government regulation is
about to pose to media democratization."
John Fund, columnist at the Wall Street Journal
"From radio talk to political campaigning, the First Amendment
is under sustained assault. In this concise, thin volume, Anderson
and Thierer demonstrate with concrete examples how a combination
of self-interested politicians, left-wing partisanship, and public
ignorance about technology and media markets have created the most
serious threat to free speech in America since the Red Scare."
Bradley Smith, former FEC Chairman
"Not even Orwell could have conceived the bizarre threat to free
speech in todays America by a monolithic mainstream media
of self-described progressives. All praise to Brian
Anderson and Adam Thierer who, in their Manifesto for Media
Freedom, provide a necessary blueprint to salvage this situation
before its too late."
Roger L. Simon, novelist, screenwriter and CEO of Pajamas
