Media Mythmakers : How Journalists, Activists, and Advertisers Mislead Us, Hardback Book

Media Mythmakers : How Journalists, Activists, and Advertisers Mislead Us Hardback

Hardback

Description

Fake news?Biased media sources?This hard-hitting critique of our media culture examines not only the ways in which the public is often deceived, but the media's role in propagating those deceptions.

But Media Mythmakers goes beyond criticism to give concrete examples of the damage that manipulation of the news causes.

From missing children to the aftermath of the 9/11 attacks, from the efforts to end slavery to AIDS education, myths and deception in the media threaten us all.

While the public is being misled, real problems go unaddressed and resources are wasted on misguided ideas. In an increasingly complex world, where accurate and unbiased information is more important than ever, this book provides a timely and much-needed analysis.
