David Mindich is the author of Tuned Out: Why Americans Under 40 Don’t Follow the News, the highly-acclaimed book which examines the growing apathy about news among young people. Inspired by the unimpressive results of a current events quiz he administered to one of his college classes, Mindich offers an analysis of and solutions to the “dire situation” he believes such apathy breeds. His ultimate message is that we can, and must, use the news to assert our political power and hold leaders accountable.

Walter Cronkite offered high praise for Tuned Out: "This is a very important book Professor Mindich has undertaken to determine the extent of the news illiteracy of an entire generation of American young people, and, to speculate with authorities in broadcasting and print as to what can be done about it. This volume is a handbook for the desperately needed attempt to inspire in the young generation a curiosity that generates the news habit. Their lack of knowledge or even interest in our government bodes a critical danger to democracy as they become the nation's voting majority."

Mindich has taken his message on the road, meeting with groups of young people around the country, talking about their news habits, and the extent to which they can assert their political power by consuming news and staying politically active. He has also met with top journalists and media executives from companies such as CBS News, CNN, The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal and The Washington Post to discuss what can be done to get Americans, particularly young Americans, to reengage in the news and politics.

Currently, Mindich is the chair of the Journalism and Mass Communication Department at Saint Michael's College in Vermont. As a former CNN correspondent, he has written articles for the Baltimore Sun, Media Studies Journal, New York Magazine, New York Post, The Wall Street Journal, and Wilson Quarterly. His previous book is Just the Facts: How "Objectivity" Came to Define American Journalism.

Mindich founded Jhistory, an Internet group for journalism historians, in 1994. And, previously was head of the History Division of the AEJMC. The AEJMC awarded Mindich the “Krieghbaum Under-40 Award for Outstanding Achievement in Research, Teaching and Public Service.”
