Eye-opening book on the media

We all know the mass media is biased and incompetent. That’s nothing new. I just had no idea how easy it is to manipulate reporters and journalists.

Then I read Trust Me, I’m Lying: Confessions of a Media Manipulator by Ryan Holiday.

I learned that major mainstream news sources may use Wikipedia for research, trust anonymous sources or blogs, and repeat completely baseless accusations in order to get as many clicks as possible.

I don’t know how you can read a book like this and continue to watch the news. Anyway, pick it up, read it, and get red-pilled.
