It shows the value of adding a sociolinguistic perspective...

The Free Press

Hilaire Belloc

The Free Press by Hilaire BellocHilaire Belloc, a great English essayist of the 20th century, takes an uncompromising look at the forces working against the freedom of the press. Targeting financial and political influences, along with the influence of advertising, Belloc exposes the powers and motives responsible for the suppression of news and the manufacturing of opinion.
