Amazon.com: Trust Me, I'm Lying: Confessions of a Media Manipulator (9781591845539): Ryan Holiday: Books
From the book’s synopsis:
In today’s culture…1) Blogs like Gawker, Buzzfeed and the Huffington Post drive the media agenda.2) Bloggers are slaves to money, technology, and deadlines.3) Manipulators wield these levers to shape everything you read, see and watch—online and off.
Why am I giving away these secrets? Because I’m tired of a world where blogs take indirect bribes, marketers help write the news, reckless journalists spread lies, and no one is accountable for any of it. I’m pulling back the curtain because I don’t want anyone else to get blindsided.
Sounds like an interesting read.
