Opis produktu

<:p>:This book discusses the media beliefs the news the Internet etc. but it should not be seen as yet another critique of the media system exploring with indignant fascination the idea of a machination against truth set up to serve a society of domination. These kinds of theories whether they pertain to conspiracy theories or more subtly to a self–:styled critical way of thinking have always seemed to be the expression of a form of intellectual puerility. This is not to say that attempts at manipulating opinions do not occur or that our world is free from compromised principles or indeed corruption: far from it but none of this is the key issue.<:/p>: <:p>:In fact reality can somehow be even more unsettling than those myths however sophisticated they may be that envisage the media system hand–:in–:hand with industry science and so forth all in agreement so as to lead the people away from the truth. It is more unsettling because the processes described in this book and that allow falsehood and dubiousness to take hold of the public sphere are boosted by the development of IT the workings of our minds and the very nature of democracy. And finally it is more unsettling because we are all responsible for what is going to happen to us.<:/p>:<:p>:This book discusses the media beliefs the news the Internet etc. but it should not be seen as yet another critique of the media system exploring with indignant fascination the idea of a machination against truth set up to serve a society of domination.<:/p>:<:p>:Preface vii<:/p>: <:p>:Introduction ix<:/p>: <:p>:<:b>:Chapter 1.
