BROOKE GLADSTONE THE INFLUENCING MACHINE PDF

One of the coolest and most charming book releases of this year, The Influencing Machine is a graphic novel about the media, its history, and its many maladies — think The Information meets The Medium is the Massage meets Everything Explained Through Flowcharts. And as the book quickly makes clear, it has always been thus. Everything we hate about the media today was present at its creation: its corrupt or craven practitioners, its easy manipulation by the powerful, its capacity for propagating lies, its penchant for amplifying rage. Also present was everything we admire — and require — from the media: factual information, penetrating analysis, probing investigation, truth spoking to power. Same as it ever was. The Influencing Machine then turns to the timely, framing in pragmatically optimistic terms the impact of the Internet not only on traditional news outlets, but on our minds themselves.

O ver here, Brooke Gladstone is an unknown quantity. But in liberal America, where she presents a public radio show called On the Media , she is something of a star: Kirsty Wark with extra frizz. Gladstone's exuberant curls are a neat physical expression of her presentational style, which is wry — and sometimes a little frisky. Her trick, I gather, is to balance scepticism and idealism in such a way that her listeners' rising outrage never cancels out their sense that what she and her guests are telling them might be extremely important.

The Influencing Machine: Brooke Gladstone On The Media

It takes me an absurdly long time to form an opinion. It took me some 20 years of writing about the media to coalesce a view coherent enough to call my own. The fact that I chose a comic-book format to present that view might seem a little peculiar to those who know me from the radio. After all, radio is the medium without pictures.
