It takes a minimal capacity for rational thought to see that the corporate 'free press' is a structurally irrational and biased, and extremely violent, system of elite propaganda.
David Edwards - Media lens

Society has varying and conflicting interests; what is called objectivity is the disguise of one of these interests - that of neutrality. But neutrality is a fiction in an unneutral world. There are victims, there are executioners, and there are bystanders... and the 'objectivity' of the bystander calls for inaction while other heads fall.

Haven't heard of this one before and all I can find is a version written in 2000. Do you know if this book has been updated or do you think the core of it is still useful for learning?

It has not been updated. Unfortunately Ken Henderson died at a very young age. Which is a shame because his books were absolutely, bar none, the best.

+100. I haven't read the book but heard only good words about it. Even heard like a holy grail for MS database guys. Grant, I didn't knew about his death (shocking).

I don't use it as much anymore....but I still refer to it now and then. There is a section on undocumented stuff that I have found very handy over the years.
