The Influencing Machine
In this graphic nonfiction book, NPR's On the Media cohost Brooke Gladstone argues that "we get the media we deserve." With cartoons by illustrator John Neufeld, she guides us through centuries of media manipulations, from Caesar's Roman newspapers to American revolutionary penny-presses to the FOXes and CNNs of today. She teaches us how to be more informed and active consumers of books, television, internet, and more.
