I picked up two books the other day. The Image: A Guide to Pseudo-Events in America by Daniel J. Boorstin and The Society of the Spectacle by Guy Debord. (complete text online.) They were both published in the 60's, but appear to speak volumes about modern society. I've started the Boorstin book; its definition and views of "news" and "pseudo-events" are very accurate.
