From the publisher's description: "The 1990s were a time of radical change in television. The broadcast networks--ABC, NBC, and CBS--lost their grip on viewers while cable stations like HBO emerged as hotbeds of creativity. And the news, long delivered by sober-faced anchors on The Big Three, was being radically changed by the all-news cable networks, first CNN, the MSNCB, and finally--and most radically--Fox News Channel. The bare knuckles triumph of right-leaning Fox News, which went from start-up to number one in five years, is one of the great business sagas of our time. Until now, no one has revealed the full details in their lurid glory."
