Publisher Description

You've seen it all before. A malicious online rumor costs a company millions. A political sideshow derails the national news cycle and destroys a candidate. Some product or celebrity zooms from total obscurity to viral sensation. What you don't know is that someone is responsible for all this. Usually, someone like me.

I'm a media manipulator. In a world where blogs control and distort the news, my job is to control blogs-as much as any one person can.

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.

I'm going to explain exactly how the media really works. What you choose to do with this information is up to you.

Lamborghini fanatic ,

A blueprint on how the fake news media operates

A great book about how the media continues to lie to this very day to generate clicks and ruin its opponents.

Ev445 ,

Great book

It’s to much to understand at first. You only get so much. You gotta study this book.

Anchored Descent ,

States the obvious

If you are completely unfamiliar with the tactics of the media, this book will give you a basic understanding of media manipulation. However, I didn’t even finish 1/3 because it is repetitive and boring. Also the audiobook narrator has a very lazy voice which made the book even leas interesting.
