12/27/11: The Influencing Machine
Tuesday, Doug talks to Brooke Gladstone, host of NPR's "On the Media." She's written a new book. It's graphic nonfiction - a journey through two millennia of journalism. Gladstone says that there's always been a fear that the media are somehow controlling our minds. But rather than being an external force, she argues that the media are mirrors that show us our own reflection. Doug talks to her about "The Influencing Machine," and about what we can do to be savvy media consumers.
