A a€œfeisty, literate, and uncompromisinga€ (Publishers Weekly) primer on the most urgent issues of our day, from the creators and co-hosts of Citizen Radio, a listener-supported show whose slogan is a€œindependent radio that wona€™t lead you to war.a€ #Newsfail is definitely not your grandmothera€™s comedic-memoir-slash-political-manifesto. From page one (in a preface titled, a€œIn Which the Authors Interview Ralph Nader in the Bathtuba€), comedian Jamie Kilstein and journalist Allison Kilkenny pledge to give you the news like youa€™ve never gotten it before. On issues ranging from feminism to gun control, climate change to class war, foreign policy to net neutrality, they tell you how the mainstream media gets it left, right, and utterly, unforgivably, irresponsibly wronga€”think Noam Chomsky as channeled by Fred and Carrie from Portlandia. #Newsfail is all this, plus the story of Allison and Jamiea€™s own DIY foray into independent media via their podcast, Citizen Radio, which has featured guests such as Jeremy Scahill, Sarah Silverman, Glenn Greenwald, and Neil deGrasse Tyson, and been downloaded millions of times by people all over the world. In #Newsfail, they a€œmake a strong case that a greater range of voices needs to be part of the national media discussion, including theirsa€ (Kirkus Reviews). Their mission is truth-telling above brainwashing.
